TF0920 : North Road Miscellany

North Road Miscellany
North Road Miscellany
We see a number of things here: street furniture at the bus-stop outside the Croft; the row of Rowan trees planted by the Rotarians along the whole road (TF0920 : The avenue of Trees in North Road), and an emergency vehicle in full blues-and-twos.

Mapping agencies are driven mad by the road naming in Bourne. North Street starts at the crossroads in the centre of town, where the old Market was, and heads North. When it gets to the Buttefield Hospital, it stops, and becomes North Road. The house numbering begins again at One. So No.s 8 North Street and 8 North Road are not the same thing at all. The same applies to South Street&Road and West Street&Road. This is North Road.
The A15
The A15 is the main north-south road in Lincolnshire, running the entire length of the county for almost 100 miles between Hessle, near Kingston upon Hull, and Peterborough via Lincoln, Sleaford and Bourne. It is also the road that crosses the Humber Bridge.
