Homs Road and Rope Walk area

The problem with the Rope Walk area is that it regularly floods whenever the Wye bursts its banks. This meant that it was impossible to see if anything had changed during the past week.

The shaft at Fiveways now looks to be an access way to get to the old culvert which can be just seen in the photo below-right.

Broadmeadows

The stream has been dammed up on either side of the causeway and the water is pumped around from the upstream to the downstream side whilst work is in progress. A deep trench has been dug part of the way across the gateway (in the middle of the picture). Presumably this will form a new culvert under the road.
