The (blurry) crowd scene shows folks from Westhorpe unable to get to our house over the dyke. This was effectively a watery crossroads where the water was flooding down our drive from the direction of Westhorpe Hall and then met the dyke flowing in the other direction.
Overflowing dyke

The collapsed brickwork is what was formerly walls along the edge of the bridge on our driveway over the dyke. These collapsed due to the force of the water coming down the dyke.

Nottingham Road culverts

The culverts under Nottingham Road and Hallougton Road have been inspected by Nottinghamshire County Council and apart from a temporary sign and two kerb stones which are going to be removed the flows through the culverts are not impeded as the photographs below show.

These culverts handle water coming out of “Springfield Dumble” which runs alongside Hallaughton Road in Brackenhurst Land.
