Subject: RE: Folklore: thatcher's language (roofing)
I remember those journeys. We often bypassed Sticklepath by coming (from Bude) via Jacobstowe and getting on the A30 at Whiddon Down. For the first time ever last Wednesday we swooped unencumbered along the new dual carriageway at Temple coming home from Truro. It was still single carriageway going west, mind! It's been a long haul. I think I'll be well into my dotage before I manage a similar swoop from Carland Cross to Chiverton!
