  • Just to add that the drains down the hill from West End Farm are all blocked. The photo also shows that the drain closest to Hazelwood is blocked. No doubt the recent cable laying works by Gigaclear contributed to the problem. The embankment up the West End cutting is no poorly consolidated and will probably continue to block the drains without remedial work.
