Lode to Quy cycleway. The grey post marks the highway boundary.

New pathway, in this section there is a 0.5m-wide verge. Less separation than standards call for but certainly much better than what we had before (nothing), and connects to very nice hedge-separated pathways.

Shadow art, showing (according to the plaque): Fen Skater, Eel catcher and Victorian Entomologist. See
