Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1734804.

I reported the blocked drains over a month ago and was told they would be cleared during scheduled cleaning on 2 August. However it has still not been done and the drains are completely clogged with leaves right through the centre of the village from the Village Hall on Church Road to at least no. 40 Church Street. When it rains the roads flood dangerously. PLEASE clear them properly.

  • Once again the drain at the corner of Cobblers Cottage gushed massive amounts of water onto Church Street last night. We believe the water is having a detrimental affect on our house which borders the footpath.... the render is beginning to come away at ground level. We would urge you to get this sorted asap. We are getting a structural engineer in to give his opinion on the problem.

  • The drain at the corner of Cobblers Cottage, Church Street, has lifted and moved two inches leaving a gap.

  • Drain at the corner of Cobblers Cottage - the cover has, once again, been lifted by the volume of water gushing out and there is a 2 inch gap.

  • Drain cover at corner of Cobblers Cottage on Church Street has lifted again and is now open on two sides - from our window it looks like 6" gap on those two sides.

  • This drain is blocked outside Cobbler's Cottage the volume of water lifts the manhole cover making it a danger to pedestrians . On 15th Jan 2020 a drain clearing contractor arrived but the drain is still blocked and no different than before. According to a man from Anglian water (who are not responsible for the drains) but he checked them anyway, ALL the drains from near the Village Hall ,Church Road to the end of Church Street are blocked. The road surface is being eroded where the water is almost constantly flowing. Sorting out the drains will be more cost effective than having to repair the roads as well !!!

  • Drain at the corner of Cobblers Cottage still causing problems. When it rains and for days afterwards water is gushing out all the way down Church Street.
