This drain is adjacent to my house (no 1) and at the top of the hill on Dowry Rd. So when it rains, the run off ( which is significant) is now undermining the wall at my front door. the drain looks like it may be collapsing ( there is a brick pushing out) and there is insufficient height on the pavement to keep the run off in the road rather than cutting past my front door.

We have cleared 2 bags of soil and other debris from the run in to the drain today as a short term mitigation but it does need to be mended / improved.
