Full Description

Road, hard packed, 6 inches below present road. Located near bus shelter, E side of A134, was said to have extended 8 foot to the east and to have had a slight camber. The sand and gravel was so hard-packed that the mechanical digger could not penetrate it, the builders dug through it to a depth of 9 inches in an attempt to make a soakaway and then abandoned the attempt (S1).
