This Highway drain is blocked as can be seen from the standing water you can see in the photo. When heavy rain like that recently which caused the road to fill with water across the full width of the road it is dangerous because of the blind corner as the road skirts woods here. Location is on the left when travelling from Drayton St Leonard to Berinsfield, it is after 13 Dorchester Road (last house in 4 Winds area) and over the culvert.
