NZ5315 : Gypsy Lane Crossing

taken 13 years ago, near to Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough, Great Britain

Gypsy Lane Crossing
Gypsy Lane Crossing
This crossing was the cause of a lot of controversy before it was closed to traffic. Some residents of Gypsy Lane had complained about the road being used as a rat run. Others then objected to having to make a two mile detour.

The Gypsy lane residents won.

The railway marks the parish boundary between Nunthorpe and Ormesby and these parishes spelt the name Gypsy Lane differently. The Ormesby side spelt it with an 'i': Gipsy Lane. Officialdom has now caused this little peculiarity to be consigned to history.
