Our local Hope Valley area, and Derbyshire & South Yorkshire in general, have taken a battering with a month's worth of rain in a day. Lots of flooding in Hope Valley, homes inundated and some roads washed away.
Out trial pitting in South Yorkshire today for a new client to establish ground conditions to assist their structural engineer with foundation design for a new dwelling. Found good ground, so everyone happy.

Successful day of pre-purchase trial pitting yesterday (following on from a Phase 1) on a smallish development plot (4 units). Always good to help a client make sure they know what they are buying. Information will also assist with planning condition discharge after purchase.
