  • This drain at the edge of the bridge in Pipewell was unblocked of leaves as requested by highways. However, the road has eroded and cracked, therefore all the mud and silt from under the tarmac is going into the drain. The images show how deep the silt and water are in the drain, the cracked road and the damaged edge of the road. Repairs and unblocking of all drains in this vicinity are needed urgently, as the water just backs up across to the Coach House and Pipewell Hall.

  • Further photos of the flooding in this area due to blocked drains and debris from the damaged road is a major cause of the drains blocking - not leaves!

  • Road drains continue to be blocked at entrance to The Coach House et al. This is NOT caused by road damage. Flooding across the road continues, blocking off pedestrian access to houses. Drain clearance still requured
