  • National Highways have stated that the flood damage to Pidgeons Lane is caused by water and debris running off Trinity Hill and therefore not their problem, however this is not possible as the bottom of Trinty Hill is approx. 10 metres right of the entrance to Pidgeons Lane and unless water runs uphill it cannot be the cause of the flooding. The water runs directly off the A35 and down the lane. National Highways is responsible for the severe damage they have caused .Please send a copy of this update to Highways dept.
