Description:Taken from the attic of the former coaching inn, The Bell, Southoe.

Looking south at the 'Southoe Bends'. The cellar of the pub was used as a temporary morgue in the 1960's as the number of fatalities was so high. Since 2014, a 60 mph limit and average speed cameras has dramatically reduced the number of crashes here.

Just visible in the distance is an oxbow layby, which was part of the road until it was slightly realined sometime after WW2, possibly when it was dualled.
