A Very Busy Year at Miles Drainage

LAMMA 2019 marks the end of the 30th Anniversary celebrations at Miles Drainage. The company was formed in February 1988 when Peter and Liz Robotham took over the agricultural drainage business from the Miles Family.

2018 has been a year of extreme weather starting with high winds on the second day of LAMMA show, followed by “The Beast from the East” in late February, heavy rain at Easter time and a long hot dry summer.

The spring rainfall brought about an increased interest in drainage, with enquiries and bookings well up on previous years, and as we write this at the end of November, our company still has three teams working on drainage projects.

Remedial drainage on cross country cable and water projects has also increased Miles Drainage’s work load this year, with schemes undertaken in both Sussex and Cumbria and other potential projects in Kent and Somerset.

With the rapidly growing need for fibre-optic communications, the company has added two trenchless plows on quad tracks and water jetting equipment to its fleet and these have been kept fully employed on projects around the country.

Agricultural drainage remains a major part of the business with the company offering a quality design, installation and maintenance service for all types of farmland throughout the Eastern Counties and beyond.


Miles Drainage is looking forward to the new experience of exhibiting at the NEC, with the opportunity of meeting both new and existing contacts in order to discuss their drainage requirements.
