SZ1393 : Iford: the sign for Sheepwash Lane

Iford: the sign for Sheepwash Lane
Iford: the sign for Sheepwash Lane
Looking along this public footpath, number J11, from its name sign - it is a short one, extending from the road here just to the gate in the background, although onward public access is available to the riverside path from there.

I think it is only in the last 10 years or so - since the row of houses was built - that the little lane has been tarmacked. Although the area here was certainly historically known as Sheepwash, it may only be as a result of the houses needing a postal address that the lane has officially been called Sheepwash Lane.

See SZ1393 : Iford: Sheepwash Lane from Castle Lane East for the view from across Castle Lane behind us, and SZ1393 : Iford: through the gate onto Sheepwash Lane for a view along the path from the far gate.
