Dear Sir

There’s a large chunk of wood protruding into the carriageway on the left-hand side going up Brassknocker Hill just after the ‘Z’ bends and before the entrance to Combe Grove Manor Hotel. This is causing a potential hazard to traffic and needs to be dealt with on an urgent basis.

Yours faithfully

  • I have just driven up Brassknocker Hill and this dangerous branch is still there, protruding into the road from the hedge about 4 feet above the ground where it will damage vans etc coming up the hill, or cause an accident if drivers try to take avoiding action. I noticed this branch on 20th July as I was returning from an appointment in Warminster and I could not believe my eyes when I saw it still is there today, somewhat battered and without leaves but just as dangerous. Please could you remove this hazard immediately. Many thanks David Koerper
