Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1813047.

Pictures will be provided. This collection of potholes has been in existence for months and results in vehicles and cycles taking evasive action on a blind bend on a hill. I experienced a near miss yesterday when coming down the hill on a bicycle.

  • Dear Sir,

    I reported the problem a month ago, but the holes have existed for many months and are a serious safety hazard. I was disappointed to find that they hadn't been reported by Litchborough Parish Council. There is a minute of the Farthingstone Parish Council meeting to say that the Chair of Litchborough PC was contacted some time ago but few residents of Litchborough use that road, so presumably they didn't bother to report it!! I find this surprising. Kind regards John Acres

  • In my role as Clerk to Farthingstone Parish Council I reported our concern to Northamptonshire County Council on 8th September. To date I have had no response. I would like to emphasise the potential danger and likelihood of a serious accident. Linda Mayne

  • There are no signs of any action to repair the road from Litchborough to Farthigstone, which is very disappointing. I notice our Parish Clerk has has made similar comments. Would you please process the order to 'get it done'.

    Kind regards
