Graham Williams has sent me this photo, taken immediately outside the entrance to Whittington Farm.
His image shows a lengthy skid mark, caused, quite obviously, by a heavy goods vehicle, as it met the KLCH 582 bus from Kirkby Lonsdale to Lancaster, in the very centre of the village.
I would point out that anyone walking on the pavement past the home of Theresa and Simon Speight, at the time this occurred, would have been in for a rude awakening.
It always struck me as a ludicrous proposition to grant Planning Consent for 17 homes, where the entrance to the site was on one of the most dangerous bends in the Village. Grahams image suggests that I may have been right.
Frankly, I dread to think what will happen when the building work at the old school is completed and numerous vehicles need access in and out of the site, on this even worse, blind, corner, the scene of a number of accidents in the past, including a Stagecoach bus destroying the safety railing that protected footpath users at one time.
