Hey, Wait Up!

Along a green lane: 14 July 2020

Bend in the Road, another title achieved in Maria’s Antonia’s #2020picoftheweek

Green lanes once were proper roads, taking wheeled traffic from village to village. But when the dictate came that parishes were to metal their roads, some routes were considered not worth the expense. This runs between the parishes of Somerleyton and Ashby, and serves Ashby church

  1. I love bends in the road. I always wonder what’s just out of sight. (Love that puddle, by the way!)

    I like it that there are still unpaved roads, that is if you don’t have to rely on them for daily rides.

    In the part of New England where I grew up, some roads were left as dirt. Some were “abandoned,” that is, had maintenance stopped on them, while some were “discontinued,” meaning the right of way was given up. Problem is, often the local authorities were amazingly casual about which action they took, and decades later people often forgot. One town near where I lived had the embarrassment of finding out its monument to its first meeting house was no longer accessible because the road there had been discontinued.

  4. Gorgeous. Do you still use them for anything? Walking, obviously. 🙂

  5. Nice to have those quieter roads that could be hiding anything round the bend.
