Rosemary Lane no motor vehicles

Rosemary lane Freshford was only partly surveyed by the Goggle Maps vehicle. The reason being it is too narrow and a vehicle coming down it cannot turn around when it reaches Freshford Mill bridge which has a weight limit of three tons. The road from the mill bridge is called Mill Lane. Mill Lane has not been surveyed by the Google Maps vehicle neither has Crabapple Lane which is the approved access road to the mill development. Google Maps has surveyed Rosemary Lane down to The Tyning (and included The Tyning).

The proposed entrance to the Freshford Mill development should be large enough to allow vehicles to turn around. But why not ban vehicles all vehicles?

I see no reason why there should not be a sign up prohibiting motor vehicle access to Rosemary Lane except for access.

The other day two Ford Transit vans (prohibited by the 6 foot six inches width limit, except for access) used Rosemary Lane as a short cut. The speed they were travelling was excessive for the location, not an offence though as the location is subject to the National Speed Limit.

 Let's stop this happening. A No Motor Vehicles sign would help to stop this abuse of the countryside.

Freshford Conservation Area

Link to this post

Freshford Conservation Area is a conservation area that includes Freshford village in Bath And North East somerset (BANES), formerly Somerset, and the hamlet of Sharpstone, and also Freshford Mill. Unfortunately Park Corner, in spite of its charm, is not included. But then an area is an area, and to define an area requires grouping all topographical elements together. The conservation area is also restricted to land within BANES even though there are some fine buildings which are in Wiltshire. Curiously, some modern buildings are included in the conservation area, this is also because of the essential geometrical properties of an area. A map of the Freshford conservation area is included below.
