Remains of Stinkpipe 46 on Victoria Avenue
The 2013 map of Cambridge stinkpipes LinkExternal link shows one just north of Victoria Bridge, but hitherto it has eluded attempts by myself and other Geographers to locate and photograph it, and I assumed it might have been lost to road improvement works over the last few years. But today I found this pathetic remnant cowering behind the bridge parapet, which screens it from the road. Even this glimpse through the railings, from the entry giving access to the Lady Margaret Boathouse, is normally hidden by a large waste bin.

The compiler of the map noted it as "cut off above the base, filled in, painted green like TL4558 : Stinkpipe 05, Maids' Causeway".
Stink Pipes

Stink pipes or Stench pipes are found above sewers and are there to vent off gases from the sewers below. Most stink pipes date from the Victorian period.
