  • Manhole cover now jumps up from its frame as large vehicles vibrate it. Previous cover broke in two and became a serious hazard (especially for motorcyclists) requiring urgent repair. Frame needs to be properly re-set this time, to avoid repeat of problem. Niels Chapman (Parish Council Chairman)

  • Please note: the very loose manhole cover is to the west of the speed camera, near the end of the Coffin Path, not to be confused with the cover right opposite the speed camera, which is deteriorating but not yet urgent.
