Spring water from behind the Methodist Chapel has eroded the tarmac footpath surface.

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 12:45, Wed 20 October 2021

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later

Sinc Lane is a PROW - E230, which is maintained by RCC. Rainwater flows down Bull Lane into Sinc Lane & crosses the footpath, pass the rear of the Methodist Chapel to flow into the stream. The water has corroded the tarmac surface, which is now down the stones beneath.

  • RCC have recently been installing a hard edge on the footpath (in places) to stop it falling away by the stream bank. There is a spring behind the Methodist Church, and a pipe underneath the footpath to divert the spring water into the stream. Unfortunately the end of the pipe, which directs the water further into the stream has been broken, which means the water is falling short on the bank. Which will undermine the footpath! Please can you have a look – you need to replace the broken section of pipe?
