The Ridgeway – 1962


To celebrate the opening of the Weymouth Relief Road and to say farewell to the old section of A354 that is to become a footpath, cycleway and bridleway, this short video has been uploaded.

With many thanks to Max Horton and the Dance family.

You’ll notice that there is no crawler lane as yet and there are few cars about.

    A fascinating snippet. Presumably in the snow of 1962/63, but not quite when Ridgeway was totally impassable, and a couple tragically died in their snow-buried car.
    This nicely complements mine taken in June 2010, see: –

    This must be one of the best designed and executed new roads in recent years. Well done all!
