2006, Maintaining the main rain drain

Maintaining the main rain drain

It was quite apparent, from the evidence which we uncovered whilst redistributing the top soil, that this land drain was once a main artery of the hydraulic system. We had anticipated the need to devise a practical method for channelling rain water from the roofs and paved terraces above, into the Dipping Pond. The integrity of the old land drain was more than sufficient to allow us to repair and reuse it.
