Clyffe Hall Hill – 1958

Approaching Market Lavington from West Lavington, along the main B road, you cross over the bridge by Cornbury Mill and head uphill past Clyffe Hall.

We have already seen this section of road in our blogs Clyffe Hall Hill in 1908 and Cornbury Mill Bridge. The road was rather narrow for motorised vehicles driving in both directions to pass one another on the hill and it was widened in 1958. At the museum, we have a photograph taken during the road widening works.

We don’t know whether the bank on the left was unstable or whether it has slipped onto the road due to the widening works.

The photo was taken by village photographer, Peter Francis.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
