Road along the east bank of Hobhole drain north of Bell Water Bridge
Roads alongside drains are prone to subsidence - see: TF3961 : Switchback road alongside Hobhole Drain.
Hobhole is a big, deep drain. In about 2008 I was driving northwards along the east bank, at less than 30mph, but nevertheless hit such a bad patch that I was thrown onto the verge, and found myself looking down into the murky depths of the drain below. I filed a complaint with the local highways authority (there wasn't so much as a bumpy road sign at the ends of the road). In spite of this, shortly afterwards a family in a car went off the road and drowned. Now there are bumpy road signs on both banks, and this 30mph sign has appeared on the east bank, where some of the bumps have also been ironed out.
