Maintenance 2012 Ground water drainage video

Little waterfall feature

At entrance to campsite

This is a small exposed part of the "Cundie" 
which stretches a few hundred metres all the way up the drive on the left.

While you were packing your tents away for the winter,
 we've hired in the usual machines to keep draining the land
and channelling the water off the pitches and driveway into the unusual " Napoleonic" drain.
