In July 1855 it was reported that there was a ditch, 39 feet long and a yard wide behind the properties on Tinkler Lane. There was also an open cesspit with served eight houses and was only eight feet deep. The cesspit overflowed and in consequence the ditch was filled with fetid matter, which gave off a horrible stench. Furthermore the local well was polluted and could not be used. The ( reluctant ) owner of the cesspit, Richard Coaks,  advised that the Board of Health should connect drains to the main sewer. Mr. Coaks was ordered to deepen the cesspit, which he said would probably not solve the problem of the polluted well.
