SP2280 : Sharp bend, Marsh Lane

taken 7 years ago, near to Hampton in Arden, Solihull, Great Britain

Sharp bend, Marsh Lane
Sharp bend, Marsh Lane
A realignment since 1970, probably constructed at the time of the dualling of the A452, has resulted in a 60° bend. Fortunately it isn't a busy road at this point, being beyond the gate to Lincoln Farm Café, aka Truck Stop in SP2180. The footpath in the foreground marks the old alignment. The turning on the left is a gated entrance to flooded former sand and gravel pits.
