The road surface has worn over time creating an uneven camber and as a result is scraping the underside of cars as they pass by. The worst area is just before the entrance to Newnham Hill Cottage on the right hand side of the road as you go up the hill. Entire road to would also benefit from being swept as large number of rocks and stones are on the road.

    Dear Sirs, I have lived at Newnham hill for 36 years. Never has the lane been do dreadful. It has damaged my car several times and many more peoples cars too. Punctures have all taken place as well as exhausts being damaged. There is a hump in the middle of the lane which needs to be taken down and re done properly. it gets done but never do they do a proper job. I know my neighbours have complained but could you send a supervisor to look at the job properly and get in touch with either myself or mr Brazil so we can explain what needs doing. I will send some photos separately. Yours sincerely Satie Warman
