Drainage

The other week James, helped by my nephew (who was digging for treasure and tunnels!!) dug out the drain hole between barns two and three…..

The Hugely heavy drain cover was hauled off….

The poo, mud and oil dug out of the drain…..

A jet wash pipe shoved down to see if it was clear and where it came out….

A hole dug the other side of the wall in the bank of the slurry pit to find the other end of the drain…..

and we think we have solved the mystery…..

James and Geoff also fixed the downpipe on barn one!! Yay no more splashing across the yard!!!

Bye bye giant drain hole!!!

James and his father spent a few days last week sorting out the giant cavernous drain hole in our yard, which we have had a black pallet over to prevent someone falling in for over a year now!!

Brickwork, cementing, bolts, a heavy duty grate which we had already in the hole, but was way too small for the opening….. oh yes and James and Geoff had two little “helpers” in the form of our niece and nephew saying “Uncle James can we ride in the tractor!?” (meaning the Gator, but they would not believe it wasnt a tractor)

Hurrah a safe drain, that was then tested later in the week by a few rain deluges!!! and its FAB!!!!!
