Found a drain . It was 1.7 deep and quite a bit of flow. It will be a problem for the liner if water is coming behind it and the reservoir is low.
Can you re pipe the drain and cap it with concrete ?

As Tim has mentioned, if being left open those sides have little chance of remaining upright without slipping. In any made ground I would advise a minimum of a 2:1 slope.

After a few problems with the land drain I have finished digging the reservoir.
It turned out the drain was blocked further down the site . That was why it was blowing the water into my dig. The cause of the blockage was it was damaged when they dug an electric cable in and didn't get repaired.
I have stepped up the bottom to stay above the drain.
The rain wasn't so bad to day but it has rained all night

This was a job to try to repair a field that has been a moto x track for a few years. Its amazing how much soil the bikes can move. The step in the ground is about 3 ft. The digger and the dumper must be classics by now. I hope the pics turn out ok I have resized on the phone I think!

Sure is amazing how much dirt, dirt bikes'll shift, when 'hunting in packs' Paul ! Pic 3 is incredible!
Looks an interesting sort of job.


They may be classics Boyo, but still earning their keep and looking pretty damned tidy into the bargain

Trax'll be impressed - a direct bucket!!

Its out of my major backend. Designed for 40 hp but mines got about 220 hp so not really surprised! Both sides have gone so I think I need one for spares.
