  • This is in Chinnor at the bottom of mill lane/ estover way. It is a hill going down from the primary school which young children, walk, scoot and bike to school. It has been there for at least 25 years and definitely serves its purpose dripping children from coming down the hill and straight into the road. Not having it there will put lives at risk.
