As residents may be aware, there is currently a tree down at Chinnock Hollow blocking the road. See pictures from Paul Taylor.

FROM THE CHINNOCK CHIMES:

Chinnock Hollow was closed on 25 February after a tree and a substantial amount of soil fell from the bank on to the road.

Somerset County Council has confirmed this week that an investigation into the cause of the landslip is still underway. The local authority closed the road to "ensure the safety of the public" and will survey the area over the coming weeks to "ascertain whether further incidents are likely".

The road could remain closed for up to six months.
