Rosemary lane & Mill Lane

Recent Subsidence by Freshford Mill Bridge in November 2006

This photo of Rosemary Lane is taken from just down the lane from the junction with Crabtree Lane.  This is the access road to the Freshford Mill site.

Hardly a road to a factory that used to supply rubber based components to the motor industry worldwide! in the 1950's.

What sort of people could approve a planning application for a dirty factory in this setting?

Further along, Rosemary lane crosses the river Frome and goes up steeply through the hamlet of Sharpstone

This photo is looking down Mill Lane from a location just down the lane from the junction with Iford Lane. The lane is about 7 foot wide and bends quite sharply. Mill lane leads into Rosemary Lane

Mill Lane near Freshford Mill Somerset
There are many horse chestnut trees in the valley and along Staples Hill. These trees are simply magnificent! and were planted by people who have lived out their lives. Each spring they provide these flowers, and for a longer time than the magnolia, which although not a tree, the only tree-like shrub  that I can think of that matches the Horse Chestnut for beauty
