A mysterious damp patch has a parish council baffled. The circular area at the village green in Holyport, Berkshire, which has been fenced off by Bray Parish Council, appears to keep flooding, however nobody knows why.
Bray Parish Council has been working with the Royal Borough and Thames Water to investigate the cause and has taken samples from the area.
Ken Elvin, chairman of Bray Parish Council said: “We don’t know why it keeps flooding.
“It’s been like that for a few weeks. It’s a perfectly circular damp patch and Thames Water and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead are mystified.
We are in the process of pursuing it with RBWM, but they don’t know what it is.
“Thames Water have taken samples. It’s not sewage and they don’t believe it is drinking water because it contains low levels of chlorine.
It could be a spring or anything, we’ve been investigating it for a month and we have no firm conclusion.
It’s a problem and it’s a mystery.”
