Best of luck with that one!
The roads have become obstacle courses.
I can't see how things will improve without a major resurfacing programme.
At least you can take a break from the roads tomorrow and watch the royal wedding

They're not bad Cliff, better than Merseyside. I went for an evening ride on Monday. West Lancs is the worse in the NW, it's like London in the blitz! 

As an aside, are you reporting them when you see 'em folks? You can go on the Council website, or use an app like "fill that hole". I does work, I use it regularly and stuff is repaired within a couple of weeks. The reason being is that if the council is aware of the pothole, then a claim due to damage caused by it will stand a much higher chance of being paid. If they can't be reasonably expected to know about it, they can fight a claim on that basis. So get reporting.

Has electricity not reached you yet?
Roads are pretty cratered in and around Bristol here.
I may move to Winsdor as they look immaculate there.

Good to know Chris, will be along over before to long now, the state of the roads in West Lancs is why i avoid places like Rivvy barn..
