Horspath Village and Traffic
Welcome to Horspath Village

Horspath in Pictures

Here are a few photos of cars and traffic problems around Horspath Village.
The disused railway bridge is the best traffic calming method there is in Horspath,
and it doesn't cause cars to crash into hedges.

Dead red car
Another car didn't make it into Horspath... (photo: Keith Brooks)



This car went through the hedge
on Cuddesdon Road near the inner chicane.
He clipped it, smashed through the hedge
and ended nose-down in a ditch.

This happened in February 2008.
The lesson here is -
Don't speed when passing the chicanes!

The above car tried to pass the outer chicane on
Cuddesdon Road too fast on his way to Horspath.
He clipped it, knocked down a transmission pole,
smashed through a hedge and ended up-side-down in a field.

The car in the next photos
went too fast into the chicane on Cuddesdon Road
on his way out of Horspath. He skidded off it onto the hedge
and the car span round to face the opposite direction.

All this happened in 2007.
