Weird object in Ackerman Road
Weird object in Ackerman Road, taken 5 years ago
Ackerman Road leads from Loughborough Road towards Lothian Road.

Apparently known locally as the 'Camberwell Submarine' (for obvious reasons!) It is a vent shaft for a subterranean boiler room. The high pressure gas boilers are used to heat two council estates nearby.
