Old and new roads
Old and new roads
Looking downhill along the A59 [left], with the old road to the right. This section leading east from Bolton Bridge used to be a winding and tortuous ascent, but the road was re-engineered in the 1970's. Still a hazardous road with sections of three lane, whilst North Yorkshire Police are often here waiting for speeders.
