    Semi detached house with one downpipe on my side has come away from the gutter (think it's blocked at the dog leg aswell). Problem is that it's above 2 extensions that form a valley so can't get a ladder up. Got someone to have a look and he's suggested tricky scaff job and 2 new downpipes at the sides of the house which ultimately sounds correct but will cost an arm and a leg and take ages. Do you think it would it be possible to get a wood platform up on the extension to bridge the valley to put a ladder up just to reconnect it at least or is that a crazy idea?
