No county (Lincolnshire) has better churches and worse houses. The poorer sort of people wash their clothes with hog's dung, and burn dried cow's dung for want of better fuel; whence comes the Lincolnshire proverb: "Where the hogs shite soap and the cows shite fire".

Yes, Bert, That's what's needed - but I recall DEW's gutters are 2 or 3 stories up and awkward to get at! It's not a DIY job. He may well have got something like you describe in place this time. Hope so. After we got our roof done we put mesh grids over all our gutter drain holes. Hopefully that will have sorted the problem for a long way ahead. R.

p.s. was my note about bird feeders any use?

Yes indeed; sorry about delay in replying. Still working (sadly). I get Dew's problem. We have had soggy windowsills inside the house AARO blocked downpipes for example. Ladder was a bit scary for me but it was good to see I still had a pulse.

Bertie, Itchen Valley.

Remember Finlake!
