Longdowns Village
I assume that this village probably grew up beside the main road to house the workers at the nearby quarry. Today it could be a pleasant place to live if it was not for the fact that it is torn apart by the main road. Traffic is allowed to tear past on the narrow road at 40 miles per hour (as we know, most drivers regard the speed limit signs as an invitation to drive exactly at the limit and never below). Quite apart from the danger of all this, the noise and fumes are appalling.
