Complete drain cover collection!!!

I decided to add my three new found drain covers to the big post of all of them!
This one I found in Rotherhithe, London, last May!
This one I found near Spitalfields Market in London
And this one I found near Victoria Station, London, not far from that fancy hotel that Princess Kate stayed in before her wedding!!
(Ed's note: I can't tell if this is the same as the other starburst ones we found in Brighton.....?)
As promised, I've now collected all my drain cover pictures into one post!!! This one is the latest, taken in Brighton, England!
And a round Brighton one with holes in!!
And a rusty Brighton drain cover!!
I found this one in Groningen, Holland back in February and has the Martini Tower on it!

These ones are from Groningen, too!
This one is from Hove in England, and has a starburst on it!

And this one has a lion!!!
Below is my original post all about drain covers in Brighton, England, first posted in September 2010!!!

A couple of weeks ago, me and Andrea went for a walk. I wanted to show her the drain covers I'd noticed - I think because she's higher up, she doesn't see them but they're ever so pretty!! This one has glass in some of it!

This one says "Gas Gas" on it - Andrea says thats You Tilly Tea. This one's pretty too - I like the squares and diamonds on it!

This one's another You Tilly Tea for Water.
G G. I wonder if that's another gas one? The other gas one we saw was also a square cover...
This one has a sunflower engraved on it!!!
Oh - a rectangular one! Wonder what this is for?
This one's called "Pam Water". I gues she's in charge of that thing called You Tilly Tea.
Oh!! This one's made up of diamonds but has a flowery design on top!
And another one made up of circles!
Hodges and Butler..... wonder who they are?
Oh! More gas ones!! Yeah, I think all the gas ones must be squares. That's how they tell.
Another square gas one!

Ah, now we have to be careful now. This is Grade C Dangerous Electricity. From Sigane. Wonder where Sigane is?
On the way home, we found some more drain cover things. This one says M but Andrea said it might be W for Water.
A triangular one!! I wonder what that does?
That's for you!
It's a Thomas Dudley Meter! I wonder what You Tilly Tea that is? I've never heard of getting Dudley and Thomas Bills.
FP - wonder who that is?
Must be important, he's on the wall too. Now, if I could only get that off for Urban Don.....
FH Brickhouse. Hmm..... Oh, it's Water.... it says so on the bottom!!
Fire Hydrant.... Andrea says that's for the Fire Engines if they need water to put fires out.
Oh, another little square one - must be gas!
We also saw one with a starburst in!

And another FH Water one! I never knew there were so many shapes and designs!


  1. Wow, I never took care about them, what an error! Some of them are very original :)

  2. That's a nice collection Beanie! And you'll find more and more on every trip you make!

  3. It is a wonderful idea to take photos of all thie special drain covers! Many thanks for sharing :-)

  4. What a great collection! Any covers with bears on them??

  5. I've not seen any but Bob T Bear says he's seen a bear shaped drain cover....
