A1(M) near Welwyn Heath
This road was originally built around 1960 to bypass several town centres on the old Great North Road in Hertfordshire. It appears on the 1964 Ordnance Survey 1:10,000 scale map, but not on the 1960 version. When it was built the road here cut a swathe through the western edge of Mardley Heath. It would be interesting to see if such a development would have been allowed today.

This is the view looking north from the Pottersheath Road overbridge.
