While reading the newsletter of the Society of Cartographers at the end of last year, TOTD came across a reference to the M96 motorway. You can view an air photo of it here:

“But it looks like an airfield”, I hear you say, and you’d be correct. You can learn more about the M96 and other secretive, lost, unbuilt and unfinished motorways at:

While on the subject of roads, TOTD fondly remembers as a child being taken on a detour in order to be driven at speed through the ford in Pigeon House Lane (SU649076). Ford enthusiasts will welcome this online guide to every UK ford, watersplash and tidal road:
