Blind Lane on official detour for Chesham from Great Missenden.

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 10:26, Tuesday 19 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Deep potholes filled with water. AM Friday 23/10/20. I did not stop to take photos as the weather was very wet and I was not familiar with the route. Travelling towards Chesham on the official detour route from the B485 Frith Hill, coming from Great Missenden. I later found that I had two badly buckled wheels and a flat tyre that had to be replaced. The detour route was totally unsuitable even for cars and some trucks were also using the detour. How do I claim for two new alloy wheels and a new tyre? Delay in submission due to lockdowns and self-isolation.
