The London Wetland Centre has just opened a brand new exhibit sponsored by Thames Water, a giant sewer complete with fat deposits and unnerving odours.
Located in Barnes, which is but a stone’s throw from Hammersmith, the Wetlands Centre is a brilliant educational day out for all the family.
The recreation of a working sewer allows visitors to the Wetland Centre to walk through a section of trunk sewer. In doing so they are treated to a cacophony of sights and smells that few of us are fortunately exposed to. So the purpose of the exhibit? To educate children and adults about the problems caused when we put the wrong things down ours sewers such as fats and cooking oils.
The new exhibit is part of the Pond Zone section of wetlands park and is a welcome addition to the Wetlands Centre. Few of us realise the problems that can happen when we put the wrong things down out plugholes or toilet and this exhibition is the perfect way to see the problems that can occur.
The new Down the Plughole attraction is sure to be a great hit with the kids over the half term break.
