Lord of the Manor (Old and new)

Scan showing the old and new road layout at the Lord of The Manor near Ramsgate. We lost a congested crossroads and gained a new rail bridge, two new roundabouts and two disused railway bridges. The old route of the A253 has been added for information.

Disused A256, Cliffsend - Coppermine - 18760.jpg
Disused A256, Cliffsend

Looking south from the disused A256 at Lord of the Manor. The house in the distance is 'The Manor' itself. The crossroads where it met the A253 (now the A299) was just to the right of the house. Taken 16th June 2008. The modern A299 runs in front of the house to the new roundabouts which are just off to the right.

A256 Muliplex - Coppermine - 18629.jpg
A299/A256 Muliplex

The short A256/A299 multiplex at the Lord of the Manor Roundabout just outside Ramsgate. This view looking south across the railway bridge, built when the junction was redesigned in the early 1990's (I think). Left at the roundabout for Ramsgate and straight on for Sandwich. Taken 17th June 2008.

A256 Recycled at Lord of the Manor - Coppermine - 18757.jpg
A256 Recycled at Lord of the Manor

Looking north along the abandoned A256 just north of the old Lord of the Manor crossroads. This picture was taken from the north end of the abandoned railway bridge which is now gated. It looks as though the old road is being used for some kind of parking area. Whenever the circus comes to town it is based just to the right of this picture so I imagine that is when this area is used.
