A35 queue Aug 08

The westbound crawl near Dorchester. The sign is a No Right Turn, although, as there are toilets here, many ignore it. Hold-ups also on the M5, A30, A303 and A66, partly due to accidents.

Sixpenny Handley (6 old pence)

The traditional Dorset finial on this sign gives the location and grid reference. The location, Sixpenny Handley, is shown as '6d Handley'.

It is one of those signs that is rather prone to being stolen, and you can see that parts of it have been replaced.

Feb 13 2008. Another coach to London and, this view near Wallisdown. The hills are much steeper than the camera suggests. It originally went straight up over the hill, until a Sainsburys was built, resulting in the detour to the right, to a rbt over the hill and, back online again.

There are now no working farm buildings at Hiscock's Farm and this is one of several large detached houses clustered near the road junction.

Morden- detail of Cock and Bottle finger-post - Geograph - 1752520.jpg
Morden- detail of Cock & Bottle finger-post A close-up of the finial of the finger-post, giving location and grid reference details. It will be noted that the grid reference SY 913 946 is written in full, without the SY prefix, as 3913 0946. Therefore, while the correct three digits have been used for the easting, the northing should read 946 and not 094 as given on the sign.
