NS8162 : Grass verge by the B7066

taken 8 years ago, near to Salsburgh, North Lanarkshire, Great Britain

Grass verge by the B7066
Grass verge by the B7066
The width of the road (formerly the A8) and the grass verge have not changed in my memory i.e. since the 1950's.
The original plan may have been for a future dual carriageway but this never happened.
The verge was used as a storage area during World War II with the dual purpose of preventing enemy aircraft landing.
