Does anyone remember the steam roller that came down St Hilary's Brow and mowed a lady down in her front garden?

no!
thank god for that! (as much as that sounds awful and I do apologise for that!)

Thats the house next door to the flutterby house. They had the wall finally repaired last year and just the other week, walked past and the wall was in pieces again!!!!
I don't know what happend, but theres an awful lot of crashes here. The 1st year we moved in here there was 6 major crashes. 4 of them on motorbikes, in the rain... (hills, roundabouts, rain, no anti skids stuff down and its a real bad combination frown )
horrified the life out of me tbh. Even ran out and brought a first aid box (the ones with everything in them).

Now when we hear a screech of brakes and a bang, we automatically grab the phone and first aid box frown

first time it snowed since being here, a double decker bus nearly ended up in our garden...

It's a bad roundabout at the top of Wallacre. I lived on Wallacre a few years back and remember a few crashes there. One being me, I was coming over the brow to go down Wallacre and someone didn't stop coming from breck road and ploughed into the side of me. My mum still lives there and I can't bring myself to go down her round since that I always go round, nobody seems to stop coming from breck road

Hi bezzy, when did the incident happen?


I remember when I was younger seeing a crash there, a VW beetle ended up on its roof.

That garden wall is always getting smashed up, I'd be installing a crash barrier instead of a new wall.

Hi Wiggi do you think it would make a difference if they put bolder lines down or altered the round about or is it just some people come to a round about and don`t really know who has right of way, the round about (outside the Asda) is the worst ,god knows why they are confused tho smile

The roundabout was put there years ago because it was an accident black spot. Doesn't seem to have made much difference really. My understanding is you always give way to the right at a roundabout, but coming from breck road, I you're not familiar with the area you can't see the roundabout until you're virtually on it.

Hey ste I think I remember that too or maybe a different one, the one I remember on its roof must have been about 1987 or around then.

I remember when I was a kid getting the bus from the Cheshire cheese to liscard and going round the corner on the brow, now that was scary I always thought it was gonna fall over!

its a blackspot because its so badly maintained & handled.

ummm I'm sure i have a photo somewhere...
Oh here



theres no traffic light system, no zebra crossings, all there is is is 4 arrows on the roundabout itself (I'm sure the general population know which way to go round a roundabout!), couple of markings on the road - after the turn off and some light up bollards that hardly ever work! Oh and absolutely no anti-skid stuff, anywhere!!!

one of the reasons I moved into this house was because of the barriers/hand rails/whatever they're called...I'm probably one a very few people who could see the benefit in them actually being there.

word of warning...Don't ever approach this road when it snows though, if its dangerous when it rains...

Well those people shouldn't be allowed on the road!
How did they manage to pass their test if they "don't know who has the right of way" as you put it?
All rotaries are the same.

Hi wiggi, yes it was before the roundabout was there.
I remember being on a bus going around there, really bad if you were on the top deck too.

I think the crash that you are refering to was a car. The 'steam roller' crash that I am refering to happend when I was little (yonks ago!) or even earlier.
