Plastic field drainage and gravel topped have been put in on three farms this week to combat against wet holes and improving drainage from the 60’s and 70’s. Crafts hill farm in Dry Drayton has had all of the land drainage connected into a new scheme and taken to the ditch running along Oakington road. This should help compact against the flooding on the roads.
I had a meeting with the County Council and an action plan has been put in place to flush the road drainage to remove silting and encourage adjoining neighbours to dig there ditches so Dry Drayton becomes ‘Dry’ again.
I’m exhausted from the expenditure and hopefully it will be the next generations troubles before revisited.
