Naughty horse owners. Old pump plumbed into Manor lake. Over half of eastern North embankment flattened. Part 2. 2nd October 2022
Inert have been having fun and games around the southern edge of the main reed bed banking. Wednesday's visit saw them installing a rather large, snazzy yellow pump on the banking to drain the area to the north of the site. I did wonder at the time as to why Inert didn't either install a sluice gate or cut a channel in the banking.
Well, the pump was not chugging away on Sunday, though it appears to have done its job. Unfortunately, it rained all early Sunday morning. My site stomp on Sunday did reveal that Inert had broached the banking by digging a channel across it. They had also dug a channel along the southern edge of the main reed bed banking, allowing water to drain through to Finch pond and thence Fleet Hill farm.
Other than that, Inert do not appear to have done much around this area since Wednesday - though appearances can be deceptive. Inert may have done other bits and pieces I could not see. Though their main focus is demolishing the north embankment
