TM1420 : Weeley By-pass (Mk 2)

near to Weeley Heath, Essex, Great Britain

Weeley By-pass (Mk 2)
Weeley By-pass (Mk 2)
About a kilometre of road was built in the 1930s to bypass Weeley and the level crossing at TM1421 : Weeley railway station. That was insufficient and now this road, a 7 km stretch of the A133, has been built to enable traffic to zoom past Weeley, Weeley Heath and Little Clacton on their way to TM1714 Clacton-on-Sea. This view is from Bentley Road looking north west. The land hereabouts is described as "a fertile loamy soil, resting on gravel" LinkExternal link . In this cutting the gravel has been exposed and gorse has started to grow on it.
