Grit heaps and salt bins

As the majority of the roads in the county are not routinely treated, we provide salt heaps and grit bins as a self-help facility for road users. Typically, these are sited in rural areas, on bends and steep gradients and in villages (often near the school) where they are most needed.

"If you are aware that the salt / grit has been used up from a heap or bin then please let us know by telephoning or emailing the contact details below."
