I am digging the foundations for concrete shed and came across this clay Pipe (at the end of my garden). I chipped a hole in it and dug around it to find no smells, liquids coming from it. I noticed it has two open seams that make me feel its disused. I rang my local council who said they do not keep plans for Pipe in my boundary. I know the wadte, water and drainage go to the front of my house. This Pipe goes under roots of a very tall tree and seems to head to my house. I also recently dug out a soakaway (1 metere down) in the middle of my garden and didnt come across this Pipe that i should pass through it (if it continued tgr. What is this Pipe? Is it used, can I dig through and build over it?

replace it, the weight of the soil on top of a repair may crack the pipe and worse case is it collapses

cut it back or go back to the nearest join but you may end up replacing the whole run

edit. You need to find where it comes and goes to, if it is a post 1936 home the drains should be mapped

This photo clearly shows nothing comes through this pipe and council and local utility company holds no detail on pipe. Please advise

they could be clay drainage tiles thats been installed to drain boggy ground? drainage tiles come in short lengths and dont meet or join, there should be a gap between tiles.
