Looking back towards Castleton.

Looking back from the A627M blockage.

The A627M blockage. The roundabout shown in the road sign will have to be "navigated".

It is believed this access road for the Trading Estate beyond will be used by the canal to get to the other side of the A627M. The canal would then have to skirt round the roundabout.
