Title: The Northern Outfall Sewer east of Stratford.
Description: A section of Bazalgette's Northern Outfall Sewer east of Stratford. This carries the entire sewage of north London to the Abbey Mills Pumping Station, which raises it by 40 feet (13 metres). The remaining sections of the NOS carry the sewage from Abbey Mills to the treatment plant at Beckton. The Northern Outfall Sewer was a massive undertaking, involving the construction of huge embankments and several bridges. The scale of Bazalgette's achievement is still awesome today. Several sections of the Northern Outfall Sewer now form the Greenway, a route used by pedestrians and cyclists.
