Geddington By-pass Opening
Yes, we know its official title is the Corby Link Road or, what will now be shown on new maps and satnavs, the A43, but for ‘us residents’ it started off as the Geddington by-pass. And we are so looking forward to less traffic, in particular the lack of heavy goods vehicles coming through the village on what is now the A4300.
Last Friday, we posted some pictures of the opening of the new by-pass taken from one of the bridges. At the end of the post we asked if you had any other pictures we could put on the website, particularly of the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Well, we’ve managed to go one better than that. We have been very fortunate in being given some most unusual pictures taken, not only from the cavalcade, not only from the leader of the cavalcade, but from someone who was videoing from the sunroof of the leader of the cavalcade, the GVFB’s fire engine, the Queen Eleanor.
Many, many thanks to John Doran and the Geddington Volunteer Fire Brigade for all of the following images.
