Industial end

The main road from Hull to the East is the A1033. It meanders its way to Withernsea, but at some point it changes from a trunk road to a primary road and I wanted to find that point. It was easy to find, it is the roundabout at the entrance to the huge industrial site at Salt End, just beyond the boundary of Hull and into the East Riding. At the same time I could confirm that the village of Salt End is obliterated under the BP chemical works. We added the detail of Paull village and Ryehill hamlet along with a few very rural little roads.

On the way home we noticed that the new roundabouts on the vastly improved Hedon road into Hull all have names, which I hadn't noticed before. They are now on the map.
