SZ1393 : Iford: through the gate onto Sheepwash Lane

Iford: through the gate onto Sheepwash Lane
Iford: through the gate onto Sheepwash Lane
Looking along this public footpath, number J11, from the gateway giving access to the riverside path behind us. It is a short public footpath, just leading here from the main Castle Lane which is visible in the background (the left-facing white car is travelling along it).

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: the sign for Sheepwash Lane for the view from the far end, and SZ1393 : Iford: gate at the end of Sheepwash Lane for a view through the gate towards us.
