The civil engineering friends have been round and the general gist is that its the outflow that's blocked. They are now drinking cider mulling over the problem.................

not going to get done in the near future then..........

Or it may be cleared using a controlled explosion and natural jetwash...

Septic tank soakaways don't live forever. If yours is from 1977, it has done remarkably well to last so long. You can't mend them either - all the rodding and jetting in the world won't help.
See this page for a good explantaion of your problem.

Replacing soakaways makes up a good part of my business, but as your tank is so old, you would probably be better off replacing it with a sewage treatment plant, especially if you have a ditch to put the water into.
