The B3084 crosses the A30 and goes on to the Wallops and Grateley.

John Neave emailed me the following information:

"This crossroads is known as 'Leonard's Grave' and used to be marked by a clump of pine trees until the County Council knocked them down to make way for a roundabout which never eventuated.
The intersection has a history: I've no idea when it occurred, but at one time the landlord of the Five Bells at Nether Wallop hanged himself after having suffered a stroke. His death was classed as suicide (although it may have been an accident) and he was buried at the crossroads on the Parish boundary between Broughton and Wallop.
I have not been able to establish whether the crossroads was named after him, or whether it was already known by that name."
