Location Description Road between Potterne Wick and Urchfont - whole length, but especially Urchont end of lane.
Road Name Crookwood Lane and Stroud Lane, Potterne / Urchfont
Hazard Type Other
Hazard Description Various potholes and subsidence, much worsened by WCC granting HGV access for repairs some years ago. WCC have known about these road fefects for years and years and commited to repair it. It seems they have given up filling in the huge holes along the lane. There are far too many to list here. The part of the road leading out of Urchfont is the worst which a continous length of broken surface stretching to the centre of the road. Makes it very dangerous as you need to ride on the right hand side of the road just before the sharp bend. The hill leading down to the railway bridge is also full of deep holes. Discraceful.
Approximate Size some continuous (broken up surface)
