Iford: service station on Castle Lane East
Iford: service station on Castle Lane East
Looking along the exit slip-road of this service station whose layout is ill-thought-out. Beyond the petrol station are a Travelodge, Burger King and Toby Carvery, which are served by the same slip-roads; however, because of the one-way routes there is no vehicular access from the garage to those establishments, nor from them to the garage.

The course of this exit slip-road also roughly coincides with a former public right of way, public footpath K46, which was the original course of the eastern end of Throop Road. The right of way was expunged when the Cooper Dean flyover and hospital were built, around 1990, although Throop Road had been severed when the dual carriageway was put through in the 1960s. The hedge and then fence to our right is the perimeter of the hospital premises, so this slip-road probably mirrors the former footpath almost exactly.
