Field 6970

Field 6970 is an area bounded to the north by the M4 (raised by at least 1.5 m), to the west by the Church Lane motorway overpass (flow blocked except for a 0.9 m culvert for the motorway ditch) and to the south by “Leading to Sodom Lane” (a road built on an embankment leading up to the overpass and with a single 0.9 m culvert). The net result is a box open to the east, surrounded by embankments and with a fall from east to west.

Dauntsey Brook flow from the east, including overland flow from Brinkworth Brook, is unable to pass north through the relatively small culvert under the M4. Excess flow travels west parallel to the motorway and should flow into this field… which would then act as an attenuation area.
