Military Road (A3055) near Shippards Chine Military Road (the A3055) winds its way along the south-west coast of the Isle of Wight. Here it climbs up to Compton Down through a cutting in the hill.

Road Junction at Freshwater Bay, Isle of Wight Looking at the gradient of the hill, I was glad to be on foot, rather than two wheels! Here's an interesting road junction; the junction of the A3055 and the A3055. The A road comes down the hill, and turns off; the continuation, through Freshwater Bay, becomes Gate Lane.
