Recherche (meaning "to look for" from darkwaders) resides on one of the mighty Don's many tributaries, Taylor-Massey Creek. Recherche's one redeeming quality comes only a few metres from the outfall, a three storey dropshaft. This obstacle allows water to flow unimpeded down the side of the valley to the creek below. After ascending multiple ladders and climbing up to the top of the room we continued up a long gradual incline to another chamber, this time beneath the large baseball fields above. After a couple of turns in the pipe it shrunk away to below standing height and that ended Recherche.
