Wet Spot 7B - 04.03.2020

7B - The Fifield Inn and Fifield Road northwards

9 "Wetspots" report 2020     Photos 2014

In the original "Wetspot" reports this location was treated as part of the problem further north up Fifield Road, between Stewart Close and Garden Cottage, then referred to as "wetspot 7".

This whole stretch of Fifield Road from the Fifield Inn to Stewart Close was the site of flooding in 2001, 2003-2004, and again on Saturday 4 January 2014.

The first step to try and improve this particular situation will be to clear and jet the underground pipe running from the Fifield Inn car park entrance northwards to a chamber at the northern boundary of Garden Cottage. From that point water from both north and south flows eastward towards the polo pitch.

A second step would be to look at the possible introduction of holding areas before water reaches the car park ditch.
