A25, June 23 2008

Looking west at Oxted, along what may be a very early bypass. Lights are a post-M25 addition for the inevitable supermarket.

A25 Old Oxted

This part was bypassed in the 60's or 70's, although it is easily missed on maps, so short is it. Certainly needed though.

The most obvious part of the bypass. 50's, 60's or, 70's?

Most of the Dorking to Betchworth section seems to be 1927, either new, or widened.

Looking north down the other side towards Guildford. A25 used to veer left until around the early 70's. A247 used to come up on right, now its the A25 instead and old road is u/c.

Looking east at the bottom of the descent from the North Downs. Last time I was here, this was still normal D2. Now its D1 on both sides. Instead of using the existing right turn lane visible, for the A248 junction, they now use all of the outside lane on this short DC, the only one between Guildford and Sevenoaks/A21. Same on other side.

A25 bypass

Looking west along the Shere bypass, towards the dualled bit. This is still untouched wide S2. It is not on a 1948 map but, is on a 1959 one.

A25 at Westerham

In the attractive small town of Westerham in Kent. Although bypassed by the M25, this road is still busy. This was a quiet moment.

Showing the A25 in its former role as a London Southern bypass. Didn't start at the A30 though.

London Road (C) Ian Capper
The first building on the right forms part of the Red Cross Inn (see <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/820860'>TQ2550 : The Red Cross Inn</a>). The remaining buildings were built around 1900, to replace some earlier which had partly collapsed in 1860 into a system of caves that riddle this area (for example see <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1091358'>TQ2550 : Entrance to The Barons' Cave</a>). To ensure that they were sound, they were built on girders. In the 1970s/80s one of the premises was occupied by a wine bar called 'On the Rocks', with a seating area in one of the caves below.


In 1987, London Road was closed while work proceeded to stabilise part of the cave system by filling them with sand and concrete.

I'd heard stories of a giant chicken roaming around Dorking. Yeah right. This is from the A24 crossing the A25, heading north. Hey, what's that over there!
