Prepping for the new drive I’ve uncovered a manhole that must have been covers for at least 20 years.

Popped the lid off and it’s full of sand.

We don’t have any issues with the drains. I guess it was surplus when the built the estate.

My plan is to ignore it and crack on unless anyone really thinks I should dig it out to investigate further?!

Answer is don’t ignore it.

Turned out to be a shallow rainwater drain. I guess I managed to push enough sand into it while lifting the cover to make it look like it was completely full :)
