TQ2642 : Povey Cross

taken 6 years ago, near to Hookwood, Surrey, Great Britain

Povey Cross
Povey Cross
Once the junction of the original Brighton Turnpike (the road in the background - formerly the A217 - and then its continuation in the foreground) and the later direct route from Gatton Point, north of Redhill, to here, built in 1816 (subsequently the A23). The junction lost its importance when the near section was truncated by the development of Gatwick Airport in the 1950s, with the Brighton Road being diverted to skirt round the east of the airport, the present route of the A23, and the A217 being diverted from Hookwood, to the north of here, to link up with the A23 at the Longbridge Roundabout.
