Petrol station, High Road, High Cross
This is looking north, on the former A10 at High Cross
Filling Station on the original A10 This section of the old A10 is called Cambridge Road. It follows the course of a Roman road known as Ermine Street and, at one time, the A10 followed the course of this road for miles. Now, some sections, like this one, have been by-passed by the new A10 that runs parallel to it.
High Street, Barley With petrol station sign.
A10 Moles Interchange, Southbound
Moles Interchange Bridge, looking north
This bridge carries the A1170 over the A10 at the Moles Interchange. The late 1970s Ware bypass previously terminated here, with the dual carriageway narrowing to one lane in each direction immediately after the bridge and turning to the left. The bridge carried the northbound A1170 from Ware, and the two roads merged in a limited access junction heading north.
Since the completion of the High Cross bypass, the bridge has been converted to two way traffic and forms a compact grade separated junction
EuroCommercials Victim of the bypass. EuroCommercials yard, now empty, was once full of secondhand vehicles for sale. The reduced traffic along Ermine Street has led to reduced trade. This site has since been replaced with housing.
New River Arms The New River Arms, High Road Turnford and following what was reported as a ??300k refurbishment about 2 years ago is also now known as the New River Carvery.

Bengeo Rural Civil Parish- Anchor Lane Anchor Lane forms a section of the road leading to Wadesmill and Thundridge from Hertford, and in this square is not near any particular village or hamlet. It is however in Bengeo Rural Civil Parish, hence the title. There is a public house called the Anchor in Wadesmill but I do not know if the pub was named after the road or vice versa.
