  • These pot holes were repaired a while ago, but not very well, a man in a van with a sack of tarmac! They really need more attention, also the lane has a stream running down it which is making matters worse, could drainage channels be cut into the verge to take the water away in the adjacent drainage ditches. Although the lane looks small and unused, there is a lot of traffic using it getting to the MoD firing range and RSPB nature reserve.

  • The damage to the road is now getting very bad and extends over many metres. Recent flooding has made the problem severe and much of the road surface has broken up. It is passable only with great care.
