Magdalen College Oxford Sports Pitch Drainage

One of the most logistically challenging drainage projects faced by White Horse Contractors faced was the draining of the sports pitches for Oxford’s Magdalen College School.

  • Sports located on an island encased by the River Cherwell.
  • Access to the sports field is via two metre wide, wooden bridges with a maximum load of 2.5 tonnes.
  • Plant and equipment were stripped down in order for the crane to manoeuvre the machinery to the sports field.
  • Over 5.5km of drains were installed in the ensuing four weeks of contract works.

Gloucestershire County Cricket sports ground drainage

Predominantly shale and clay based, the ground in the outfield area was especially prone to flooding, as rainwater could not naturally drain away. As such, heavy rainfall often caused the pitch to become waterlogged due to the high levels of standing surface water.

  • Installation of more than 4km of drainage.
  • Improvements to the storm water infrastructure.
  • Installation of a new attenuation tank and automatic irrigation system.
