Drain on northern side of A31 at Ocknell, New Forest
Drain on northern side of A31 at Ocknell, New Forest
Marked on the map as a drain, this consists of a long straight ditch with ten or so of these concrete barriers placed across it at intervals. It discharges ultimately into Highland Water. The drain is overgrown and does not look as if it has been cleaned out for a long time. It is possible it is obsolete following the dualling of the A31. The drain is on quite a slope and it is possible that the barriers are intended to slow the passage of flood water.
