Bransholme. Here we have the Wawne/Foredyke Drain that connects with the Holderness Drain just above the Great Culvert Sluice. The western end is drained by pumps into the River Hull, but they broke. By the drains map it appears to become wider towards the east and by Google the ground level at each end is similar. Perhaps it originally flowed from west to east - lowering the Holderness, by dredging, would make it flow again.
