London's Stink Pipes
Our mission: to seek out and catalogue all of London's stink pipes. If you know of one we haven't featured on this web site, then we'd be grateful to hear from you. Also, if you know anything about stink-pipes, such as, who built them, why, who owns them now, are they still in use, are there any in existence outside of South London, etc. then please let us enlighten us.

This one, found just off Eltham High Street, is quite interesting, and unlike any we've seen before.
*(LNnote20/10/06 - there is one just like it on Blanmerle Rd, Eltham)
*(LNnote2012 - another one had turned up in Welling)
Unfortunately the original pictures associated with this post have been accidentally deleted. New pictures to be taken asap.

Myatts Field Park
The local council finally trimmed the hedge enough so we could photograph this stink-pipe which sits within the grounds of Myatts Field Park in Camberwell.
The manufacturer is unknown, and no other example of this type is known either.
Detail - below.
the pipe, which is the orginal metal one, has gone a bit rusty.

Simon Cornwell left this message:
"There are stink pipes throughout the leafy suburbs of Beckenham.
The upper part of The Avenue is unadopted by the council and retains original 1930s street lighting fixtures attached to the stink pipes.
Several examples can be seen pictured on my website here:"
