Stream on 2nd

This picture is the water ACTUALLY flowing this morning so we can now definitively call it a stream!!
On a positive note the drainage has been really effective and all the ground in the vicinity is firm, even after 31mm of rain in the last 24 hours. We may have to, in due course, do some minor alrterations/adjustments near the top of it to accomodate the heavy volumes.
Either ways, this now happily shows that it was the correct move to build the stream from not only a golfing perspective but also a practical one as well.
