The Maiden Erlegh brook has breached and flooded the pathway in Reading

 

The gully design means the water backs up and finds its own way round, instead of using the stream bed further along.

There’s a risk  of flooding to the houses on the low lying ground, and because it’s fast flowing,  there is a risk to the health and safety of people trying to access the woodland.
