The start of the A50

Original post-Warboys sign signaling the beginning of the cross-country route in Warrington. There used to be a similar looking sign signaling the large A57 roundabouts at both sides of the town, however both were removed when the Midland Way fly-over were completed.

Driving along the old A50 through Draycott, now sadly unclassified. It was clearly a grand road in its day, S3. It's now got a 40 limit.
