Just had a check and the B3081
Including Zigzag hill will be closed from Monday the 20/5 until the 31/5 for resurfacing.
So you should be okay tomorrow

If is resurfacing hope it's not a squirt and gravel type as that will be really dodgy.

"cut up badly over winter" Ferchrissakes, I came down it for the first time ever last October (known about if for years) when my Lad and I were in Dorset for a few days. It was like a bloody MX track then!!

I shudder to think what it looked like just now!! :o

I must have gotten used to the state of the roads here then. I went down it a couple of weeks ago and thought it was normal service. :|
