  1. chris simpson says: when was the burgh road shortened{the burgh old road goes round the back of the welcome public house where as the “new bit” goes strait across. I have a feeling that at this point that there was a pit/ pond/mere as the land either side of the new ramper is approx three feet lower than the road.
