The large double drain outside New Barn Farm

Reported in the Blocked drain: Blockage inside drain category anonymously at 12:51, Fri 6 December 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 3 minutes later

The large double drain has recently had the pothole around it redone. However, the drain itself is solidly blocked with silt (and was at the time of redoing). This results in the drain opposite backing up and water flooding around the low area of the double drain. This then throws cars into the middle of the road on a dangerous double bend. This is a very key drain to take the surface water running from the opposite field and Whitewood Farm entrance. Periodically locals clear these drains of surface leaves etc, but the double drain is fixed and cannot be unblocked by us.
