Several large potholes on the edges of both sides of Grove Park Drive on the hill up past Lains Barn between Lain's Row wood and the A417 junction.

The whole of Grove Park Drive between the A338 and the A417 has potholes at various locations along the edges of the roads. The road is relatively narrow in places and often traffic is forced into the centre of the road in order to avoid the potholes. The section past Lains Barn has become particularly bad over the past year. If you are unfortunate enough to have oncoming traffic at the various points where there are large potholes, you are either forced to stop or go through the potholes and suffer the potential damage to tyres and/or wheel rims.

This minor road has substantially heavier traffic throughput than would be expected of a road this size as it is used as a by-pass for traffic to avoid Wantage and Grove. It is even busier whenever there is one of the frequent issues on the A34 around Didcot or Abingdon.
