  • A team came and addressed the sunken ironworks. Not sure if the problem was fixed since another team came and added an inch of tarmac to the entire road. Result: sunken ironworks - worse than ever. Down the years I have reported this. My house has been subjected to severe vibration caused by passing traffic since 1997 and probably before that. I want the road fixed and it might be an idea to put a 30 mph limit on Horncastle road between Red Cap Lane and Rawsons Lane. Why a limit of 50 mph was set a few years back is beyond me since there is housing from the town end right up to the railway crossing.

  • Perhaps it’s time l got a surveyor to assess what effect this long-running, oft-reported problem has had on the structure of my house.
