Solving a flooding problem in Crofters Cottage

Whenever it rains, water pours into Crofters Cottage through the back door. 

Something had to be done to remedy this problem.
Under the earth at the threshold a large flat stone was discovered but over the years earth had piled on top. 
This was lifted and relaid by Peter and Andrew.    A couple more flat stones were acquired and drainage added below.

Now water drains properly into the ditch beside the cottage, making life much more comfortable for any inhabitants.
