Information received of an accident between a motor bike and car at the top of Rock House Lane Wednesday July 25th. Motorcyclist taken to hospital with skin abrasions but fortunate not to have been more seriously injured. A resident from near where the accident took place confirmed that it was 'an accident just waiting to happen'. He has contacted Highways who will be inspecting the spot with a view to putting in a 'SLOW' sign at the top of Rock House Lane. Apparently there have been numerous cases of vehicles careering into Rock House Lane at reckless speed from the Teignmouth Rd (from Torquay side) and several near misses.

On our nightly patrol around the combe noted the following: Spray markings on the road around the bus shelter suggesting new designations in the offing ... small tarmac patch on Steep Hill just before Cross Orchard ... the surface (chips embedded in tar) dressing recently applied down Rock House Lane has worryingly developed holes in it at various places - mostly on the hill.

Right photo: Looking back down Brim Hill, the damage caused by heavy vehicles (refuse lorries etc) forced wide to get round the parked vehicles. Since this photo was taken a week ago, the surface has deteriorated further.
Highways have been informed of the damage and will be making a visit later this week.

Just been down to the car park and cove and I've estimated that up to 100,000 gallons of rain water every 24 hours is draining into the lowest part of the combe and exiting via the now inundated drainage conduit (now seen as the waterfall) at the base of the cove steps. All drains and drainage pipes are blocked. The sign 'Overflow car park' is ironic to say the least. It will take many days of dry weather to remedy the situation.
