186923Photo #186923Easily negotiated on foot, and feasible if not ideal when wheeling a bike (but not eg a cargobike) route down from woodland path to High Ditch Road. There is some evidence of a trodden-down fence so maybe not meant to be a public access?Track:

186275Photo #186275There isn't a good place to move from carriageway to the wide section of shared-use path in order to bypass vehicle queues for the lights and reach the cycle advance box (though there should be space on carriageway between the two lanes of vehicles).

Lots of residential dropped kerbs, but none flush so oblique approach is hazardous.

186236Photo #186236Signposted Love Lane cycle route ends at narrow not-shared footway with fence etc blocking direct access to the road. Uncontrolled 'crossing' is to the right. Car park is private land but a flush kerb into it would be a welcome improvement.Cycleway:

186235Photo #186235Not on a signed cycle route (that's Love Lane nearby), but shown on the council cycle map. Multiple entrances to chipshop premises on the right. Very common to see bikes locked to the chicane, sometimes obstructing it, because there's no convenient bike parking for shop (Tesco then, Coop in future) or chipshop. No visibility splay to busy footway which is not shared-use.Cycleway:
