Potholes are developing along Banbury Road as reported back in 2019. It is now getting so bad that the house shakes when large vehicles thump into them. Further, loose stones are now being thrown out of them that damage the parked vehicles nearby. You can see a trail of loose stones along the road. It appears to be where either a drain or water main lay beneath the road.
