Hi - This pothole has been developing for probably 3 weeks now. It is adjacent to a drain cover on the left hand side of Main Street travelling towards the centre of the village and approximately 150 yards from the Foxglove Lane corner. Please see photos. I would say it has the potential to unseat a cyclist or damage the wheel of a car. It is just where the road narrows approaching a bend and for the unwary is difficult to avoid. Thank you.

  • This pothole is massive and needs to be filled urgently before someone's car is damaged.

  • Too late already happened!

    I had left my home in East Hagbourne travelling to Basingstoke via west Hagbourne, I was driving along main road toward the triangle when my car went down with an almighty bang when I stopped my tyre was completely flat and I’d hit a pothole! This is located after the 30mph limit sign and next to a drain opposite the apple trees bungalow, I was stranded and had to be recovered and my near side front had 2 slits on the inside wall.

    This is in need of desperate repair!
