NAtural spring flowing from front garden and onto pavement /road. Just wondered its possible to cut a drain through pavement to stop water flowing on to pavement and causing a H+S issue.

  • I live at no 10 the front and back gardens and path is waterlogged and so are the verges, it has been reported repeatedly to Cottsway and they are waiting for the council to come back to them before they tell me what they are going to do

  • I notice it is running so beautifully clear and the birds are all bathing in it and using it to drink from and so I wondered if a ditch could be dug out along the side and have a brook created at the edge of the field, it would be great for wildlife, be pretty and resolve an issue, if it was then diverted to the (brook) just thought I would share that thought / idea

  • Once again update and more pics sent to cottsway today as the amount now running in to the road is far more as well as all the path and verge pooling
