You call them stenchpipes, we call them stinkpipes, let's not call the whole thing off; who cares what we call them as long as we celebrate this wonderful old Victorian relic. Is there one on your street?
Our mission is to find, map, photograph and catalogue every stinkpipe in the Greater London area, though out of London is welcome too. Please send your stinkpipe pics here or to firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter: @stinkpipes Holder of 6Music's Geek of the Week accolade, 1st October 2011
