A terrible stretch of road, I'm surprised there has not been more serious incidents here.
If only the patrons of the Woolpack used the car-park behind the pub the road would be clear, rather than parading their vehicle on the road to show off to everyone that they are at the Woolpack.
The car park is empty most nights whilst there an be up to 20 cars on the road.
