Good thing you aren’t visiting any of Herefordshire’s little summits as our potholes are far superior to those in Shropshire! Our car doesn’t really notice the holes on the road into Brown Clee via Tugford where the road closed signs proliferated. We were much relieved to find that the way to our usual parking (by the mini library in the telphone box) was still open with the ‘we are really closed’ sign just beside our turn. I do wish they would tell you where the road was actually closed as this was some miles beyond the first sign. Our potholes are just as good in the market towns and in Hereford and I just have to remember where they are when I come home on the bike in the dark. Roll on the lighter evenings!
PS We drove up the valley to the parking between GW/SW-009 and 015 (M Troed and Llangorse) a couple of days ago and noticed that the road had deteriorated badly with potholes and broken away margins (and streams of water down it which would have been ice if the sun hadn’t been shining). We thus decided to return to Talgarth by going over the pass and descending to the village of Llangorse and driving up the B road. The surface was better but the ice at a couple of junctions at 4pm, with the sun shining nearly all day, was so bad that we realised we would never have made it to the parking if we’d tried that route on the way up. Anyone got a spare 4x4??
