Today 19/06/2021 at 1721hrs whilst passing the Royal Sarcens Head, Beaconsfield towards Wycombe end I hit a very deep pothole going downhill towards the Esso petrol station. The pothole is just before the double yellow lines end and before the first traffic island. The speed limit is 50mph. I hit the pothole at 30mph and felt a substantial judder within my vehicle. I am unsure if the pothole has damaged my vehicle at this time but will have the vehicle checked for damage to the near side tyres and rims. I have downloaded footage from my Dashcam and the footage shows the vehicle hitting the pothole. A police officer was parked close by and has been made aware of the pothole. The pothole is extremely dangerous and could seriously injure some on a bike or motorcycle. If you require footage I am happy to provide it to you. Having checked google earth it appears the pothole has been repaired in the past. Having reviewed the Dashcam footage further the pothole has knocked my fixed Dashcam out of alignment. This can be seen in the footage.
