Abbey Way Gyratory is perhaps the most unwitting magic roundabout in the country - varying standards of the links (one side is S2, the others are D2), different sized roundabouts (one is a full sized roundabout). Add to the mix that you never get the whole junction on one sign, but instead get 1, 2 or 3 roundabouts on the advanced direction signs (and sometimes you don't get them). Then there's the side turn down St Mary's Street and the entrance to Wycombe Abbey School. All in all, it's pushing the boundaries of 'magic roundabout' somewhat, perhaps being more a magic gyratory.
