Line Drainage Systems and that old Eurythmics song, Here Comes The Rain Again, often come to mind at this time of year. I so often seem to have that song going around my head because even though we’ve just had another wet and wild winter, but you just know the rain will keep falling into April and beyond. And of course, channel drainage systems from Killeshal come to mind because something will need to handle the resultant surface water, particularly where high capacity or heavy load-bearing drainage channels are required.

“What have the Romans ever done for us?”
Kerbs and Gullies make for better roads and in more ways than one they define them. I have long been fascinated with the great Roman roadways and I can’t help but remember with a silly smirk or two, that scene in Monthy Python’s Life of Brian on the pros and cons of the “Roman Imperialist State”. If you’re a Pythons fan you’ll remember John Cleese’s frustration in saying “Well, yeah. Obviously the roads. I mean, the roads go without saying, don’t they?” Continue reading
