The ditch on this side of the road, where the blocked pipe is, has been permanently full for several weeks and appears to have nowhere to drain to, if you follow the lane down. The ditch on the R side of the lane drains to a pond eventually, nr Moor Ash farm. I've never seen the pond this full, and don't know if it drains to anywhere. This ditch being full isn't helped by the fact that, in preparing the site several years ago, the owner of Dunston Stables, near Rose Cottage B76 0EE, changed the course of a water course. It had originally gone thro the garden of Rose Cottage, but he changed it to drain into the ditch, which we did not agree with. Since this time it always has water in it even in summer. This is a worry when incessant rains come. On the photo, the white gable end of Rise Cottage can be just seen in the distance on the right. My blind 92 year old mother lives there. Further down the lane there is alot of water, permanently across the lane in places, that has nowhere to drain to.
