Woodland View, Wroughton (2)
In the days before the M4 opened in the early 1970s Woodland View was part of Croft Road, the main route south from Swindon towards Avebury and Devizes. The construction of the motorway provided the opportunity to divert the main road, widening it and removing a bend. The old stretch of Croft Road is now in two cul de sacs either side of the motorway of which this is the southern section. The motorway is about 90 metres away in the direction of view hidden from sight in a cutting. The road terminated at the local pub LinkExternal link The Google Streetview car missed this stretch of road.
