    Default The Road to Nowhere (yate mar 2020)


    400m of unused carriageway that was built in 1974



    The Road to Nowhere in Yate was originally part of a scheme to create a bypass road.



    Work was halted due to the rising costs of materials and funding by outside companies.
    Plans to finish and open the road has been on the table but it hasn't gone any further as to date



    The road is mostly used for filming ie Casualty, Skins, Broadchurch, CBBC.

    Mate, don't even waste your gas money, there is only one way in and one way out and the council has a big gate with an even bigger key to stop the petrol heads! only the dogwalkers and bike wankrs can use it

    Bike "wankrs" include many people interested in conserving/preserving heritage and sites-of-interest.

    Bikes give good quiet access to many places off-limits to motor vehicles. (They are also easier to park, hide and don't generally attract attention).

    Stay safe.

    This road was used a lot for filming the bbc drama casualty before the studio moved to Cardiff
