On the road outside the field opposite Holywick House

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 16:57, Tuesday 11 August 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Drain completely blocked by stones and silt. Two weeks ago in heavy rain the road flooded completely - spilled over the kerb and into our porch coming within a few millimetres of the bottom of our door (which stands 6 inches above the ground). We were sweeping water around the house for an hour to avoid water coming into the house. This is not the first time the road has flooded (every time we have heavy rain) but the first time that the drains on our property have not been able to cope with the volume of water coming in off the road.

  • Flooded again twice yesterday. The above photo shows the water coming off the road at midnight last night - we barely kept it from coming into the house.

  • On the opposite side of the road from this drain we have found at least 2 further drains both of which were covered by mud and are completely blocked. Please could these be cleared at the same time? We have just had a small amount of rain and the road flooded completely again within only a few minutes.
