The biggest village

We had a meander round the west end of Cottingham today. People claim that it is the biggest village in England - it certainly felt that way. We checked out some of the small residential roads off St. Margaret's Avenue and Green Lane before heading into the older estate off the Parkway.

One thing that stood out is that there are lots of little footpaths from one street to another all generally heading towards the village centre where the shops are, all with the daft no cycling sign that looks as though it means cycles only. Other signs forbidding things have a bar through them.

I think we have done about 30% of Cottingham in total, not all today, so still plenty more to do, and since it is close to home I think we should finish it fairly soon.
