CATG Action / Recommendation


I live in a little hamlet called Long Dean nr Chippenham. The road leading to Long Dean is a single track lane that leads from Giddehall to Upper Castle Combe. The road is being used on an increasingly more frequent basis by people using sat navs to get to Castle Combe racing circuitgolf clubvillage. Would it be possible for someone to assess the lane and consider adding more passing points please Its not uncommon to have to reverse a considerable distance when you come across another driver who doesnt know the road.
