Rain, Rain...

We've had a lot of rain. The spring by the side of the house- that only appears after heavy rain- is bubbling up. The donkey house (which hasn't had a donkey in it for at least 40 years) is flooded.

We called in the man from Dyno-rod. He plunged and jetted and rodded and couldn't find where the drain went. We explored the donkey house and found a secondary drain that seems to be linked to the first but that didn't seem to go anywhere either. The likelihood is that these drains aren't  drains at all but soakaways- which can't be expected to function properly when the ground is waterlogged.
