Lord of the Manor (Old and new) - Coppermine - 18761.jpg
Lord of the Manor (Old and new)

Scan showing the old and new road layout at the Lord of The Manor near Ramsgate. We lost a congested crossroads and gained a new rail bridge, two new roundabouts and two disused railway bridges. The old route of the A253 has been added for information.

The gate that now hinders any progress along the old A256 at Cliffsend. The old road beyond is sometimes used as a car park.

Another view looking north across the old railway bridge that used to carry all traffic from Dover to Margate. Road markings are just visible as is the gate at the northern end. Taken 16th June 2008.

A256 Muliplex - Coppermine - 18629.jpg
A299/A256 Muliplex

The short A256/A299 multiplex at the Lord of the Manor Roundabout just outside Ramsgate. This view looking south across the railway bridge, built when the junction was redesigned in the early 1990's (I think). Left at the roundabout for Ramsgate and straight on for Sandwich. Taken 17th June 2008.

A256 Recycled at Lord of the Manor - Coppermine - 18757.jpg
A256 Recycled at Lord of the Manor

Looking north along the abandoned A256 just north of the old Lord of the Manor crossroads. This picture was taken from the north end of the abandoned railway bridge which is now gated. It looks as though the old road is being used for some kind of parking area. Whenever the circus comes to town it is based just to the right of this picture so I imagine that is when this area is used.
