Ditching works in Southleigh
Southleigh Parish Council secured funding from the Highway Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund to carry out extensive ditching and culvert clearance.
The works were carried out along the lane from Hangman’s Stone to Nanny’s Water, along the road from the top of Southleigh Hill past Gays Farm, the entire stretch of Southleigh Hill from the village up to the top of t he hill and the ditches both sides of the road along the Farway Countryside Park (now closed) stretch of road.
This work has significantly reduced the build up of water on our road surfaces, preventing flooding and any further road damage.
