Ditch Dynamics on Lower Trent Falls

The ditch is holding its’own. The bed in the upper reaches is intact & composed of a rich clay & marl.Its’ fairly dry considering reason rains of late August.
The mid-course of the ditch under the confluence with two others ditches from the East & South, is lined with concrete slabs which increases the run-off onto a local political area of leisure & residents, who have a great impact on the angle of repose leading down to the Trent river bank.
The ditch banks have been recently maintained which will only act as a temporary aesthetic measure. Building should never been granted permission on a sensitive escarpment.
