SU8591 : High Wycombe: A404 Marlow Hill

taken 3 years ago, near to High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, Great Britain

High Wycombe: A404 Marlow Hill
High Wycombe: A404 Marlow Hill
This is the view looking down the dead straight A404 Marlow Hill towards the town centre of High Wycombe. The old large scale Ordnance Survey mapping has a height of 222 feet at the bottom and 506 feet at the top, so it's a rise, or a fall, of about 284 feet or about 87 metres. This particular stretch, from the Daws Hill Lane junction in the distance up to the summit, is comparatively new. The old maps show the route swinging round in a roughly half-circular shape to the east in the past.
