  • Problem still there, marked by a squashed cone on the edge of the road. Completely invisible in the dark and rain. And unavoidable... I'll be putting in a claim for damage.

  • I encountered this pothole on 28th Dec 2022 in the dark driving towards Honiton. Luckily (having hit the previous pothole further back towards Kilmington) I was able to avoid it. The traffic cone and the large puddle alerted me to it so I was able to swerve round it.
