Carsington Water

There is possibly nowhere else in the country where the treatment of water and particularly the treatment of human waste, has been turned into the subject for a theme park.

Just to clarify that statement. Carsington is not a theme park in the same way that Alton Towers is a 'theme park'. Alton Towers' 'theme' would seem to be rides that will scary seven shades of the stuff that forms Carsington's theme out all sensible people. Carsington does not do 'sewage' themed rides in that Alton Towers 'theme park' sense. It would be somewhat messy if it did.

What Carsington lacks in multi 'G' rides it certainly makes up for by focusing on the fascinating theme of poo.

Ever wondered what they do with it once you have done your duty and pulled the chain/turned the handle/press the flush button?

Ever wondered where the water that comes out of your tap comes from?

Carsington has the answers and breaks it to you gently.

It also has canoes for hire which is a great way to work off the shock of the full unadulterated truth about sewage treatment.

Thunder Run 2017

 Thunder Run is a 24 hour trail relay race consisting of 10k laps around Catton Park, on the Derbyshire/Staffordshire border.

Guy will be running this gruelling race to raise funds for Hothouse Theatre's 2017-18 theatre season.

Guy will be running in a team of 8. The aim is to do 3 laps each over the 24 hours of the race.

"Last year I got 1.5k into my second lap at 1:30 a.m. before 'finding' a pot hole, doing my ankle in, and hobbling the rest of the lap. Before settling down by the campfire and 'red wining' with the emphasis on 'whining' my way through the rest of the event.

This year I have a date with the 1:30 shift!" - Guy
