The safety of the crossroads at Clay Corner (the point at which Lower Road meets Woodways and the north-south intersection of Stanbridge Road) has been called into question over many years, and events over the last few weeks would seem to support calls for improvements.

There have been at least four significant incidents at this crossroads since the start of 2016, and we've not reached the end of March yet!

As we reported in January a motorcyclist was in collision with a motorcar, and two weeks ago another motorcyclist was involved in an RTA at the same location.

Last Wednesday (23rd March) a huge agricultural implement came adrift from its trailer while being towed by a tractor through the same junction.

We now learn that on Good Friday, 25th March, another vehicle was involved in an RTA at the Clay Cross junction.

According to local residents, a blue VW car left the road on Friday lunchtime and ploughed through the hedge into the grounds of Haddenham Community Junior School, very close to the crossroads in question.

Neither the vehicle nor the young male driver were specifically identified, but observers claimed that he was fortunate to avoid hitting some of the well established trees in that corner of the junior school boundary hedging.

After ploughing through the hedge, the cheeky driver then drove across the field and out through school gates.
