  • Please do something about this sooner rather than later as someone is going to have a serious accident even trying to walk down here. The potholes are deep and potentially leg:/ankle breaking. Not to mention damage to vehicles also horses etc being transported down here.

  • These potholes are getting beyond a joke, my small car is having difficulty even driving over them very slowly they are so deep. This needs to be prioritised, it may be a lane but I need to access it twice day along with another 18 people, we all go to Home Farm on a regular basis. It is proving to be impossible to have any transport for horses to negotiate these potholes without causing injury.

  • Pot holes are getting worse - really hard to avoid them so I'm very concerned about damage to my car.
