- Mamhead road closure between 11/10 and 23/10 October 4, 2016
BT are working on the telephone lines between Oak House (Home Farm) and Red Cedars (Village Hall) between 11th October and 23rd October. This involves replacing poles and undergrounding some cable. The subcontractor thinks that in reality it will only take 3 days but be prepared for some diversions via BlackForest Lodge.
