Great North Road – Chesterton (1925)

Looking north along the Great North Road with the old Oundle Road (A605) crossing in the foreground. Today, the road to the right would be the slip-road off the A1 that heads up to Alwalton with the “new” Oundle Road crossing the A1 more safely via a bridge just behind where the photographer would have been standing.
