Judge's Corner
Judge's Corner
Roundabout completed in 2009 at the junction of the B2028 West Park Road and the B2037 Snow Hill/Effingham Road. Originally this was an ordinary crossroads, but around 1960 it was turned into a staggered junction in an attempt to improve traffic flow. However, this proved inadequate, with significant queues building up in both directions on West Park Road. Various options were considered in the 1990s (including even then the provision of a roundabout), but it was not until 2009 that the work was completed.

Although I have not found any evidence supporting this, I assume that the name Judge's Corner refers to John Henderson, who had a house built in adjacent Effingham Park in the 1870s and who among other things was a magistrate.
