Photo listing: (problem)

The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

This listing only shows photos within Earl Shilton.
Go to the national CycleStreets photo listings for photos beyond.

To whoever reads these comments and makes decisions to take forwards: Don't look at the map - actually go to J22 and try walking (or cycling) from Altar Stones Ln to Little Shaw Ln. It is a complete and utter death trap! This Junction … [more]

Poor access to the shared use cycleway at Queen’s Park, Hinckley.

Cyclist skirting the stupid chicane on Banky Meadows.

Pinch point on Sapcote Road, Burbage.

Ridiculous chicane at the Outwoods, Burbage near Hinckley.

New development seemingly designed with on footway motor vehicle storage.

This housing development appears to have been built with cycling access, but it’s usually gated off when I go by. Signs claim that it’s private.

Dreadful footway shared use cycling scheme in Earl Shilton. At best the highway authority is trying to do something, but putting cyclists and pedestrians into conflict is not the answer.

Welcome to Earl Shilton, please drive carefully. Then there’s a mini roundabout and cyclists are directed onto the footway.

Highfields Road one way, Hinckley.

Car litter.

I snook through the car park to get past this temporary closure.

This is an extremely busy road into Desford, with HGVs and buses driving at speed around often blind corners. There is not even a pavement in many places, yet it’s a key part of many students’ commute to a large secondary school. It’s an … [more]

There is currently no path that continues around the park and in particular path access to the playground. This means that pushchairs have to be pushed over muddy and wet grass in order to reach the playground. This has resulted in a very … [more]

Rugby Road is very busy and the path narrow. Lorries and traffic are so close to pedestrians and waiting to cross the road I have to turn the pushchair sideways as there isn’t enough room on the path. Further up the road, houses have … [more]

There's a bridleway from here that ends about half a mile away towards Thornton. Pave/gravel it and extend it to Thornton so kids from Bagworth can get to school by bike in Thornton and South Charnwood.

A narrow footpath encircles Stamford Memorial Park which many children and families used to cycle around safely (learning to ride bikes, safe leisure activity away from roads etc.). However, cyclists have now been banned from using the … [more]

Lots of cyclists and walkers go from Groby to Newton Linford and vice versa. We really need the road widening to make a cycle path one side and a pavement for walkers the other side.

Many people walk between Carlton and Market Bosworth on a regular basis. There is no footpath or pavement just mud and long grass for around 700m. Cars travel past at 60 - 70mph and pedestrians are blasted by the speed and often have to … [more]

This footpath is used a lot by workers cutting through to Sketchley Meadows industrial estate and needs upgrading especially around the stiles and gateways which become boggy in wet weather meaning it is impassable, resulting in people … [more]

Need to widen path to improve safety and add cycle lane

Improvement to bridleway to make safe for cycling

The pavement needs widening needing reduced car parking and pedestrian priority

The pavement from the end of Hinckley to the start of Barwell village is extremely narrow and when walkers and cyclists are using it there is no space to walk or cycle at a safe distance from the person you are passing. There is a huge … [more]

There is no footpath, residents with children, walkers and cyclists from Earl Shilton going to woodland trust wood on other side of Clickers Way or to Watery Gate are forced to walk on road or rough grass verge. Very dangerous cars at 50 … [more]

The pavement from Bowling Green Road junction with Leicester Road and then all along Leicester Road to the school is too narrow. As it serves two schools who encourage cycle and scooter usage but is also very narrow commuting times are … [more]

The footpath on the A50 north, from Wallace Drive to Field Head is not blessed with many pedestrians I encourage that it includes a cycle track - to keep cyclists of the very busy road

Leicester road traveling between Sacheverell Way and Marston Drive, (northbound) the road is single width. reduce by white markings, cyclists can avoid the outer lane by riding on the white chevrons but are forced in 3 places because of … [more]

Cycle path to nowhere. This section needs to join up to the Dodwells junction which also has a path to nowhere. Well used route, check where the grass has worn away due to pedestrian / cycle traffic.

Not wide enough to allow 2 bikes or even 1 bike and a pedestrian. Barriers need moving, there should be enough space.

Pedestrian crossing is dangerous. High speed traffic. Add in crossing signals.

This would be a good roundabout to add in a Dutch Style to give pedestrians and cyclists priority over traffic. The roundabout is a huge size and with some improving a dutch style would work here.

No pedestrian/bicycle crossing signals. It is really dangerous crossing here. You cant see the car signals and you dont know who is going when or where. This junction is a fatal incident waiting to happen.

A shared bicycle pathway here would be much better. The road is very busy and bicycle usage is rising fast. Traffic is very high speed.

The new pavement that has been installed is too narrow. Widening the pavement will help to maintain distancing whilst reducing traffic flow.

Regular sweeping needed in autmn / winter as tree debris makes riding surface slippery / dangerous for users.

Footways not wide enough for volumes of children / cyclists using the route at school times.

Very difficult to cross at school times with few gaps in traffic

Route well used by school age children but impassable when ground is wet.

Shared use facility stops abruptly with dismount / proceed on foot sign. Cyclists are then forced onto dual carriageway with HGV traffic.

Hazardous crossing for peds / cyclists. Limited visibility, 60mph traffic, well used by peds / cyclists and equine users.

Currently there is no safe cycle way between Hinckley and Stoke Golding.

Remove 50mph sign just prior to the humpback bridge over the Ashby Canal. It encourages traffic to travel far too fast over the bridge. Maintain the 30mph speed limit to the Fenn Lane crossroad.

Double yellow lines to discourage dangerous parking by St Martins School. Parking obscures the pedestrian crossing to and from St Martin’s School as well as the Convent Drive and Morris Homes site. The road is reduced to a single … [more]

Double yellow lines to discourage dangerous parking by St Martins Acadamy. Parents line the road to collect their children very close to a mini roundabout. Road users cannot see oncoming traffic turning left from Stoke Road into Hinckley … [more]

Double yellow lines on both sides of the road to discourage dangerous parking on a blind bend close to St Margaret’s School.

Improvement of tow path to allow wheelchair use, double buggies and other people to use the tow path at all times of the year.

Disabled access to The Ashby Canal Conservation Area. Include hand rail for the infirm. Currently there is a very steep slope preventing disabled access.

A pathway wide and even enough to allow safe passage over the bridge for all types of pedestrians.

A safe wide even footpath, for residents of all ability. Walking from Stoke Golding to Dadlington and The Around the Village Circuit using Stoke Lane passing Stoke Golding wharf and St Margaret’s Church.

At least one path down Hinckley Road should be even enough and wide enough for all pedestrians to travel safely. This includes people old and young with poor balance, parents with double buggies etc. Ideally footpaths on both sides of the … [more]

Radical improvement of the curent footpath between Stoke Golding and the edge of Hinckley and Morrison’s Supermarket. This is currently very narrow and in places comes so close to the curb edge that it is frankly dangerous. The footpath … [more]

A wide cycle way on both sides of Stoke Lane, to connect Stoke Golding to the edge of Hinckley. Most cycle paths are purely of token width, allowing cyclists to bump along In the potholes and drains. The outer edge of the cycle way should … [more]

Currently there is no safe cycle way between Hinckley and Stoke Golding.

Create a barrier to turn Wykin Lane into a cyclist, walkers route and access only route. This will allow safe Non-motorised passage from Stoke Golding to Hinckley. Please ensure double buggies and adult tricycles can pass through easily … [more]

Cycle priority is needed along whole of perimeter road. Cyclists are required to give way not only at side roads but also factory entrances! On balance I feel safer on the road where I at least have priority.

Needs cycle path or shared pavement access for cycles from Anstey Lane wanting to turn right

Speed humps don’t slow traffic down and cause issues for locals. Pathway along side of Hollycroft Park could easily be widened to accommodate foot and cycling path.

Ridiculously narrow cycle lane markings on both sides of the roundabout on A47 to the Leicester side of the roundabout. Remove them, or make them 1.5m wide as they should be!

Needs a physical road narrowing barrier +/- height barrier to prevent HGVs from using this route.

Fast road, with poor sightlines often used by tired foreign HGV drivers in a hurry! Needs a dedicated off-road cycle lane in both directions.

High speed traffic, narrow road, awfully dangerous. Close to quiet road past Burbage common so add a bike lane.

High speed traffic, narrow road, awfully dangerous. Close to quiet road past Burbage common so add a bike lane.

Current advisory cycle way is nowhere near wide enough and does not stop drivers from driving in it. The cycle way just ends at the roundabout and does not join up with anything useful. Could join up with the hotel and the road out to … [more]

We have a large amount of pedestrian traffic walking down Groby Lane to both Bradgate Park and Groby. Due to the covid 19 distancing measures this causes pedestrians to walk into the road which usually has fast moving traffic, travelling … [more]

Prevent vehicles (primarily of homeowners) driving on the shared use path against the direction of traffic on the A50 to reach Markfield Rd. Dangerously unsafe and occurring several times daily.

Wide footway could easily be a shared facility, rather than narrow length of on-road cycleway on road

The shared use crossing point is very narrow and difficult to negotiate - ensure all crossing points are on desire lines and provide smooth transitions for journeys

Cycle route 2 ends around here but there should be provisions to extend it up Newtown Linford Ln, giving cyclists a safe route from Leicester centre into Bradgate Park.

Catchment school for Bagworth is in Nailstone. Children can’t cycle safely along this stretch of wood road between Cinamon the and Range road. Mixed cycle way/pavement would be great.

There is no footpath at all here. Please make one for safe foot passage between Anstey and Groby

Pavement too narrow and weeds grow over path
