There is a very strong smell of petrol or diesel when you get close to the streamway culvert does anyone have any info on this.

Thought I'd replied earlier, but appears not. Must not have clicked 'post'

It usually occurs after very heavy rain/floods and I suspect is diesel washed in from Netherwater Farm (which is often like a lorry yard!).  Either they've had a big spill, which has now washed in, or its just collective spills etc that have washed in following the very heavy rain.
