  • Blocked drains under tunnel seem likely. Water has been running down for weeks. Maybe a spring has emerged after those weeks of rain or maybe a main higher up the slope is broken - nearest is about 70 yds. Might be opportunity to dig small wildlife pond to act as drain from this new source by the cycleway - nice to see, good for wildlife and save the tunnel flooding. Or fix the man....

  • WCC Rights of Way team have organised the drains under the bridge to be cleared, which will resolve the flooding aspect of this notification. The source of the water seems to be the responsibility of Severn Trent Water, who are now looking into that issue

    State changed to: Fixed
