6 - Ledger Farm and the Junction of Coningsby Lane south and Forest Green Road
Water coming down off the Drift Road high ground collects on either side of an entrance on the south side of the Forest Green Road and can only proceed by spilling out onto Forest Green Road and down Coningsby Lane. We have been unable to achieve anything here yet. Suggestions made in our report are unlikely to find Local Government funding, at least not in the short term - Photos.
Perhaps the best we can try and achieve in the short term is to encourage the landowner to agree to provide much more of a sump area on the south side of the road so as to delay the progress of large quantities of water for a while longer.
This would also have the beneficial effect of reducing the flow of water arriving in the front garden of Willow Creek (which used to be a pond) and trying to get under the road at the culvert there to flow round the back of the old Chapel - "wet spot" 8.
