A1000 - old GSJ - east side

On the left hand side of this picture you can see where the present B197 Welwyn Bypass (ex A1) crosses over the present A1000 (ex B1000). The bridge was built in 1927, according to the engraving on the side. A look at an aerial photo shows that this junction was a partial cloverleaf, but these days, priorities have changed, and what was once the westbound to southbound 270 degree loop is now a right turn for southbound to westbound traffic - the bridge spans one leg of a gyratory now.

This picture is taken looking west from under the B197 bridge. These days, the A1000 continues round to the right, with a local road going into Welwyn village, but when first built, the right hand of the fork would have operated in reverse, allowing northbound traffic to turn east along the (then) B1000 towards Digswell.

Sign on the B197 near the bridge over the A1000. The no-entry indicates where the westbound A1000 joins the roundabout, and the right turn is where the eastbound A1000 leaves the roundabout. The roundabout is situated where the north end of the loop roads would have ended up.

Strictly speaking, this is the B197 - looking over the bridge over the A1000.

View of the underside of the B197 bridge over the A1000. It's a concrete bridge, but built in 1927, when they liked you to think it was built from stone.

The plaque on the B197 bridge which says it was built in 1927. You're going to have to take my word for that.

20190308-1211 - Stevenage Sign.jpg
Stevenage location sign in a lay-by on the former A1. The sign is likely to be very early in the life of the new town, Gresley Way to the east being incomplete. Several of these would have featured around the town in order to assist navigation, along with colour coded districts that featured on road signs.
