Roads less travelled 6

Roads less travelled 6... why not in the Morgan photo gallery.... ? I have added a selfie while m/cycling on the same road some way further up the hill though at the time I took it some years back there was no such term as selfie in existence... (-: No selfie stick utilised just an old film camera with it`s timer set and balanced on a rock.. No one else would be daft enough to be on that road at the time... (-: Also there is no chance of me being recognised from the pic given I took it when I had hair and did not need glasses, circa 20 years ago.. oldgit

Having rambled on a bit in the Maintenance and Servicing section of the forum relative to "Roadster toe in" and having suggested that there may be found a degree of flexibility in the many variables built in to the design of an old style trad that equate to FEEL when steering it round a tight Z bend on a steep incline, that which I was typing caused me to think of and look out a picture taken in such a location. They say a pic can be better than a thousand words but my pics tend to be accompanied by something close to a thousand words...(-:

The location is on one of my much favoured local ish Morgan roads, where on occasion my Morgan has been surrounded by sheep as they were being herded along the single track road to pastures new, so perhaps for the sanity of the sheep farmers perhaps best not to post the location on an open social media forum lest it ends up becoming part of the must do tick off on the list journeys for social media addicts, such as I may have become....sigh.. !

Dual carriageways in Norfolk aren't as smooth as that innocent

Thanks for showing interest Guys, it is a good road rather than a great driving road, and as there are no fences to keep the sheep off the road one has to bear that in mind at all times. Being single track with blind summits and bends adds to the fun,the scenery is wonderful as is/was the lack of traffic. Admittedly I have not driven it for quite some time so perhaps some You Tuber has already located it, thus it may be a tad less quiet than it used to be..

The z bend is perhaps not entirely obvious but it is a rather steep and tight one for sure.

Many THANKS for showing interest in the pics folks. I do indeed feel most fortunate to have access to some wonderful roads, though living on the edge of the city`s suburbs, I do well understand the other side of motoring on congested roads and the effect of the exponential increase in car ownership of more recent years too.
