SY3192 : Track and road, Alder Grove

taken 5 years ago, near to Pinhay, Devon, Great Britain

Track and road, Alder Grove
Track and road, Alder Grove
A curious spot. The unfenced lane through Shapwick Grange Farm performs an extravagant hairpin off to the left here, although it is scarcely doing so in order to gain height. At the point of the hairpin is the entrance road into Uplyme Quarry, which works chalk and sandstone LinkExternal link . Clearly impatient with the circuitous route around the bend, vehicles have carved short cuts across the neck of it, of which this is one. The chalk is much in evidence. Alder Grove is the wood on the right. You can see Shapwick Cottages up the valley ahead.
