Because the roots of a protected redwood tree have raised the road, severe ponding of water occurs adjoining the church car park. By email on 26 February 2016 @ 14:57 highways and traffic said the issue would be dealt with by a small works order. No action has been taken and the ponding has worsened.

The ponding causes difficulty for elderly and frail people who frequently use the car park. The church would not oppose raising the edge of the car park if that would simplify solving the problem, though on the downhill side of the tree raised carriageway the drainage gulley is also poorly made so water does not flow readily downhill around the bend. Note photos were supplied in 2016.
