Exploratory digging to find the lost drains of the Long Marston recreation ground has produced a result, reported Cllr. Mike Tomlinson. Sadly no Saxon hoard or Viking pirate treasure was uncovered by the excavator, but broken drain pipes were revealed, so that’s something at least. The drain does exist, but it’s lost the facility to flow. A contractor will be engaged to replace the length which drains the bottom end of the playing field, and connect it once more to the good bit which was examined in the first exploration.
