Geo-Trips :: Herts to Hunts

Caxton Gibbet

A drive from Baldock, Mon, 21 May 2018 by David Howard

Having covered most radial roads from London one of the next projects is crossing the countryside in new directions. This began on the A1 and headed towards Royston and then beyond towards Huntingdon and then south again towards London on another road. Certain parts of the home counties are usually nice and quiet and this is one of them, so I rarely get held up going towards the east part of TL as opposed to the west which can get very congested.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
