SS6024 : Turning at Little Weir

Turning at Little Weir
Turning at Little Weir
This minor turning off Pound Lane End (the A377) is the former Umberleigh-Torrington road, and was replaced by the present SS6024 : Junction of B3227 with A377 in the early 1970s. Once the new alignment of the B3227 was built, the county council made a traffic regulation order to make the old road one way (i.e. uphill only) roughly as far as can be seen in the photograph, to prohibit right turns into it from the north, and to exclude all motor vehicles from the entire length of road except for access.
Minor roads at Little Weir
The minor roads from Pound Lane End (the A377 former turnpike up the Taw valley) to the B3227 at the foot of Easter Hill, are the former B3227 Umberleigh-Torrington road and a spur to the north. Before the new alignment of the B3227 was built in the early 1970s, these were the main roads to Atherington and Torrington (although Rock Hill provided the most direct, if steep, route up from the south). Once the new alignment of the B3227 was built, the county council made a traffic regulation order to make the old road from the south one way (i.e. uphill only), to prohibit right turns into it from the north, and to exclude all motor vehicles from the entire length of roads except for access.
