Further to your visit today, we are Haseley Brook Cottage, OX44 7LW the one on the left in Standhill Lane. There is a road drain at the foot of the drive, but it is covered with water, mud and loose tarmac, which is why you did not see it. This is also the case with several other drains in the lane. I can point out exactly where they are, but was not here when you visited. I am on 07979598999

The drain can now be seen but is not fixed because the seven drains leading to it have not been unblocked. This drain links to drain 9 further down and that is blocked. As soon as it rains the drain at the bottom of the drive fills up again with the water stream down the surface of the lane. The other drains are currently marked 'no action', so sending one truck to clear one drain was pointless.

Still open, via questionnaire
Blocked road drains. This was the state of the lane immediately outside our property this morning at 9.04am with light rain. To the left of the first photo shows the damage to our frontage from the streams of water. On the right of photo 2 is one of the 9 blocked drains in this stretch of lane we have reported since last year. This surely cannot be left to 'routine' fixing when the damage is so extensive.
