Drainage rates are payable to Lindsey Marsh Drainage Board in the usual way.


All the land is scheduled as Grade 3 by the Agricultural Land Classification of England and Wales. The land is level lying. The soil type is described by the Soil Survey of England and Wales as:- Holderness “slowly permeable seasonally waterlogged fine loamy soils and similar soils with only slight waterlogging. Narrow strips of clayey alluvial soils”.

The land is not in a surface water Nitrogen Vulnerable Zone.
