Historic road



Over near the shops they have installed this exhibit.

It is part of the old road uncovered during the road works and was moved here to show us what the road was like in 1832 - 1860.  I am glad it was not me bumping along this road on hard carriage wheels.

No wonder the railway which came through in the 1860s was popular.

  1. Oh my! I cannot imagine what it would have felt like to ride in a buggy with wooden wheels over that uneven ground!

  2. I think I'd prefer riding on horseback than being jolted all day in a carriage.
