The hosts of Southern Water’s world-famous Sewer Tours are giving parts of Brighton’s Victorian sewers a fresh lick of white paint.
For more than 50 years, the tours have given visitors a glimpse underground at the Victorian infrastructure which is still in use today. Last year, 1,600 people delved beneath the city streets with Stuart and his crew.
Stuart said: “For most people a spring clean means vacuuming behind the wardrobe – for us it means finding ways of making a working sewer as pleasant as it can be.“We give the sewers a refresh every year for our visitors. The pipes themselves remain unpainted as they form part of the working infrastructure but the whole route is jet-washed before every tour.
“We’re proud of our sewers and are looking forward to this year’s tours so we can show more people the hidden wonders under the city.”
