The Tyburn River, like many of the Thames’ tributaries that crossed central London became the course for a sewer. Although not as Grand as sewers favored by London Urban Spelunkers, such as the Westbourne, its a spooky wonderland, no less so because its name is infamous as the place where public executions were traditionally carried out.  Source

Rankine Tailrace Niagara Falls. This is one of the seven overlooked wonders of the modern world. A mile from the falls themselves, sits a disused unlikely neo-classical power station that contained Tesla’s very first AC generators. Billions of gallons of water were sucked in from the nearby Niagara river and flung 10 storeys underground onto giant turbines. Huge tailrace tunnels then channeled the waste water right to the foot of the horseshoe falls.Source
