The drain from the (big, fairly newly installed and effective) roadside gully is blocked where it crosses the lane and there is continuous extensive surface water flow which freezes like a ice rink in winter weather. It looks like at some point there was an underground ceramic pipe from this gully across the field into the Cam Brook, but that has been broken and pushed down at some point and the drain is now discharging at into the field through what's left of a broken, blocked pipe half submerged into the mud. I have tried and failed to clear the pipe with DIY-standard drain tools.
Thank you for this report. We will review the details and carry out an inspection of the site if required.
