Hey Chris,
It mainly waterlog's due to the soil being really clay heavy at about 30 cm down its solid blue clay. I live in leitrim which had notoriously bad soil, they suffered the worse during the potatoe famine due to the soil not supporting anything else.
I'm on the phone at the moment but I'll post a contour map and a soil sample next week that  you everyone for your help so far.

The second photo here shows a wide angle with our pond in the middle but it waterlog's everywhere....

I allready have drainage ditches dug throughout the property, but it's still water logging on the little islands...
I have 5 acres so digging a ditch with a hoe isn't really an option I was looking for something on a larger scale, maybe books to read on water management ?

So Winter is set here where we are in Ireland, and I'm having a large problem with water logging the soil. and creating a mud field...
I wanted to avoid digging in french drains and use a more natural solution. Does anyone have any idea?

I've have had to ship all of these parts in and they take weeks so I'm not changing them now
That being said the cleanout at the end of second bench will have the wall in front of it removed.
So no problem there
Also this is at the end of last week so we have the benches cobbed in now or the foot and a half is anyway.

OK I've just built a J system 6' in my living room and I love it, I'd now like to build a kitchen version with a oven and a hob. Are there any books plans I can look at?
Kind regards

Just as an update: I've gone ahead and used the 6'' and it works amazingly so far! I haven't put in the cob on top of the hvac yet but I fired it yeserday and all looks good

I've settled on a 6inch J tube, I have a insulated 5' chimney going through the wall and up outside it has a VERY good draft at the moment. I'm going to hook it up and see if it works if it doesn't I'll be punching a hole in the wall and putting the 6' exahust straight through the wall.
