Freehay. Until a few years ago Counslow Road ran more or less level from the photographer's position to the top of the far cliff (a point about one third of the picture width from the left hand edge). The current Multimap aerial image LinkExternal link shows the road intact and the new Counslow Road being constructed in a sweeping curve to the west and north. The new road opened in 2000 at a cost of 2 million. Since then Tarmac, the quarry operators have carved out this great trench.
