Market Rasen Racecourse Drainage Installation

September 2021

In September we installed drainage on the home straight and wood bend at Market Rasen Racecourse. Main drains were excavated at 550mm deep and backfilled with 100mm pipe, gravel and sand. Lateral drains were cut 450mm deep and backfilled with 80mm pipe and gravel to within 150mm of the surface. The trenches were topped up with sand which was press wheeled to compact.
