Looking north along the A6 towards Preston.

This photo was taken from the middle of three foot crossings of this dual carriageway in a very short distance. The next one can be seen approximately 100m further up the road. Whilst all are open to the public, only that next crossing is a recorded public footpath. However, the council have erroneously placed the public footpath signs on this middle crossing instead.
The A6
The A6 is Britain's fourth longest road and one of the main historic north-south roads in England. It currently runs for 299 miles from Luton in Bedfordshire to Carlisle in Cumbria, although it formerly started at a junction with the A1 at Barnet.

Running north west from Luton, the road travels through Bedford, bypasses Rushden, Kettering and Market Harborough, continues through Leicester, Loughborough, Derby and Matlock before going through the Peak District to Bakewell, Buxton, Stockport, Manchester, Salford, Pendleton, Irlams o' th' Height, Pendlebury, Swinton, Walkden, Little Hulton, Bolton, Chorley, Preston, Lancaster, Kendal and Penrith before reaching Carlisle.
