What is a soakway? 

A soakway is essentially a hole dug in the ground and filled with rubble or coarse stone, aiding drainage of surface water. Soakways are often used to drain large areas including highways. Though not suitable for all types of property, soakways are a good way to recharge groundwater effectively. Get in touch
