Oct 1993. One man and his dog told me the bypass construction was imminent. The man agreed with the dog. I think it opened in 94 or 95.

Cross Keys Bridge - Geograph - 1528305.jpg
Cross Keys Bridge
Crosskeys Bridge is the third bridge to cross the river Nene at this location. The first timber and cast iron bridge was built by Rennie & Telford in 1831. It was replaced by another, designed by Robert Stephenson, in 1850. The current bridge, a swing bridge like its predecessor, was built in 1897 and used to once cater for road traffic on one side and rail on the other. The railway reached Sutton Bridge in 1862 but with the Beeching cuts it was closed in 1965 and the bridge converted to purely road use, taking the A17 over the river.

Several images of the bridge (including one showing the previous swing bridge which no longer exists) when it was still used by the railway can be found here: <a title='http://www.leytransport.i12.com/joint.htm' rel='nofollow' href='http://www.leytransport.i12.com/joint.htm'>Link</a><img style='padding-left:2px;' alt='External link' title='External link - shift click to open in new window' src='http://s0.geograph.org.uk/img/external.png' width='10' height='10'/>.

Byard's leap - Geograph - 1985195.jpg
Byard's leap According to local legend, hundreds of years ago, an ugly old witch called Meg and her black cat were held responsible for failing crops and dying cattle on Ancaster Heath. A local knight 'Big Jim' and his trusty steed Byard approached the witches hovel .... she attacked them and sunk her claws into Byard who made a prodigious leap, greater than any horse had ever made before. The witch fell off whereupon Big Jim dismounted and killed her. The four horseshoes mark the spot where Byard landed and has been known as 'Byard's Leap' ever since. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byards_Leap
