Blackfirs Lane in 1996 - Coppermine - 20762.jpg
Blackfirs Lane in 1996 - Blackfirs Lane, Solihull taken in 1996 showing the road narrowed to S1 after it was closed to traffic. I'm not sure when this took place but the grass on the right looks well established. Today I suspect it's even more overgrown. EDIT- this is now on Google Street View and the vegetation is completely overgrown.

End of A303-Start of A30(T)

Looking east. Local traffic for Micheldever or, round to A30 west, turned right here but, gave way to A30(T) Trunk road flows had priority in both directions. Sign for Micheldever visible. This area is hidden behind a rubble mound but, is well worth investigation, in view of its former status on the holiday road to the West.

A82 Glen Falloch - Coppermine - 16989.jpg
Abandoned stretch of A82, Glen Falloch

Between Inverarnan & Crianlarich (north from top of Loch Lomond) there are a few sections of by-passed A82 remaining, abandoned by the upgrade which occurred 20-25 years ago. This is the longest of the remaining stretches at this location. This view is pointing roughly south-west. Behind our bovine friends there is an old bridge before the road curves back round to the east to meet the new alignment.

Old A30 - Coppermine - 17218.jpg
Old A30

Most of the old A30 in Devon is a nice drive but, a few bits are out of bounds, like this section between Cheriton Bishop and Whiddon Down. The D2 is just beyond the line of bushes and, the rerouted 'old' road is to the right and goes over the new. This bit is invisible from both without stopping to investigate.

Forgotten A30

Bypassed in 77/78, by construction works, it went along the line of the new just ahead and was absorbed, before emerging on the other side, just before the Merrymeet GSJ.

Looking up the new bridleway and footpath. The soft path to the left is for horses, with pedestrians and cyclists on the tarmac.

Anyone remember sitting here in their car on hot summer days in long traffic jams?
