Above ground drain/stream blocked

Reported via iOS in the Excessive or dangerous littering category anonymously at 16:31, Mon 27 February 2023

Council ref: 4268155.

This ancient above ground drain works well in Lyncombe Vale Road as the road slopes downwards. Unfortunately it is blocked with leaves and weeds as it has not been swept for a long time. See photos. This is not only a practical and efficient drain which removes excess rainwater but also a heritage monument. An example of how drains used to work historically. It needs cleaning to work.

  • Still not cleared ….. not a big job but clearing it will mean the rainwater will flow down the lane as it should do
