Both photographs taken from the bend of Burton Lane. The first (containing the cars) is taken facing North East in the direction of Mill Lane. The other, facing North West in the direction of St. Dunstan's Church - the Church Hall is visible in the top left of the picture.

There are two blocked drains. The principal one of concern has been selected and is located under the mini-pond (see attached photo).

The second blocked drain is underneath the grey Astra. This has been filled in with dirt upto the grid for some years.

As the road cants SE - NW, the water depth is around 1-2" on the SE side towards 5" on the NW side.

The run-off from the backed-up drain is slowly running towards the Church (as shown in photo 2). This flow is not reaching the Church as a cut-out was inserted a few years ago to another drain that is not recorded on your map. In the photo taken towards the Church Hall, this is roughly around the kink in the footpath.
