Enough is never enough

I was fascinated by Simon Taylor’s visit to the proposed race circuit in Derbyshire, but when I drive it I find the long straight, the A515, very boring, especially at today’s speed limits. There was, however, a proposal in 1955 to increase the length of this circuit to a total of 14 miles by adding a loop to the west of the main road using the B5054 down Hand Dale before turning up Long Dale and eventually coming back to the A515 at Endmore, thus cutting out the long straight.

Maybe worth another visit and article?
