Route signs

Rather pointltless kissing gate - easily avoided

Very narrow, fenced and overgrown cyclepath

Solar powered LED and reflective edge of cycleway stud. It is used here to mark the way across a level crossing, but could be used much more widely to mark the edges of unlit cycleways. UPDATE 2020: These have now been removed for some r ... [more]
