The old A66 east of Penruddock
The old A66 east of Penruddock
It is difficult to believe that this was once the main road from Penrith to Keswick! Of course after the A66 was realigned, sections such as this which are no longer 'needed' (e.g. because they link to other minor roads) are left for nature to take slowly back. In this instance the old road is probably still used as an access to the adjacent field.
