Long pothole on the left hand side of the road if driving towards Bugbrooke. Almost as long as a car. Very dangerous.

See above. It's been there for a little while now. If you drive past the house on the hill, towards Bugbrooke, its down the left hand side of the road just before the last small bend before you go under the train bridge. A number of times I have had to drive through the pothole, due to being unable to swerve it as a car was coming in the opposite direction. It needs to be fixed before someone's car gets damaged.

  • I hit this pot hole in the pitch black at 10pm on 11th March after being forced onto the wrong side of the road by the traffic lights as you are leaving Bugbrooke to go to the A5. I’m now left with a very flat tyre which, when fixed, is going to be expensive!
