  • At the last meeting of Tackley Parish Council it was reported that this manhole cover has still not been replaced. The Chair has asked the clerk to enquire as to when it will be replaced. I have already contacted this site to inform them of the location. It is at the junction of the 4260 and an entrance to Tackley opposite to Sturdy's Castle PH. The missing manhole cover is near the bus stop on the road to Tackley. There is a bright blue plastic cover in place to alert the public but it is not safe to stand on and may not be seen in the dark.
