Like i said previously,outside ones boundary is not ones responsibility here in Wales,except trimming ones hedge boundaries to a public road,or a private road if shared access.

i have recently had a different but similar puzzle ,my aunties drive was sliding downhill against a boundary wall to the next door drive.

the deeds were useless in determining who owned the wall but as owning the wall and having the boundary on the far face makes her garden a foot by 5 yards bigger in the part extending from the drive wall to the end wall i reckoned claim the wall to the far side ,mend it for 2 k and get a bigger plot and no future arguments was a good option

tis daft when the original plot plans give no indication of responsibility for the maintenance of boundary structures .

Well. I did try and find out whether he thought the ditch was mine on the basis of the "hedge + ditch presumption"
He however vehemently maintained that he owns the whole ditch, but I must pay (his son's firm!) to clear it because it's downhill from me!
When asked to direct me to any legal evidence or statute about this rule he got very ranty, wrote lots of angry emails in CAPITALS about BLOODY TOWNIES, and then went mysteriously quiet.
(I'm not a bloody towny btw)

He knows that he hasn't got a leg to stand on, then.
