  • All gullies have been inspected and are free from general detritus with water levels down below the outlet pipes. This is a common issue during heavy rainfall and given the gradient of the carriageway, with this in mind we have installed an overflow pipe at the bottom of Cisbury Ring to take any flood water away direct into the adjacent brook.
