Lifting water up to the South Forty Foot Drain from Rippingale Fen
Lifting water up to the South Forty Foot Drain from Rippingale Fen
Each of the villages between Bourne and Heckington, a distance of some 15 miles, almost without exception has a road leading out onto the fen named after its village and terminating at the South Forty Foot Drain. The next village to the south which is Dunsby has Dunsby Drove terminating at South Forty Foot Drain, whereas the next village to the north which is Dowsby has one of the few drove roads which cross it.

Long Drove which runs out on to Rippingale Fen terminates at South Forty Foot Drain where a lonely pumping station exists to lift the water from the dykes on to South Forty Foot Drain. This view from by the pumping station looks towards the embankment of the South Forty Foot Drain which is beyond where the cows are standing.
