Sinkhole on the path. 2 foot deep. In danger of further collapse

Sinkhole on the very edge of the path which looks as though it is in danger of further collapse and taking the path with it. 1 foot wide, 2 foot deep! I could see that the tarmac overhangs part of it. Very dangerous as it is just to the side and so you don’t immediately see it from a distance. It is about 300m from the edge of Faringdon.

Council ref: ENQ19832549

  • All I can say is that I was walking between the farm and Faringdon. A large orange cone had once been placed there but when I passed it the cone was on the side in the grass. I don’t know if it’s still an issue as I don’t live there anymore
