categories, Main Rivers and Ordinary Watercourses (such as streams,
channels, ditches, dykes,culverted/piped watercourses, lakes and
ponds). To direct your enquiry it is important to know which type

Environment Agency's 'Flood Map'.

their property boundaries are maintained free from blockages, see
