Local lad makes good. Well known as a Tudor churchman and statesman, this sculpture of Wolsey reminds us of the great man's pedagogic sensibilities, as well as his love of cats. https://seeds.suttons.co.uk/gardening/Wallflower-Cloth-Of-Go ... [more]

Shared-use cycle path emerges across pavement from behind a building.

The cycle lanes in #Ipswich are pathetic at the best of times but this doesn't help! https://t.co/bZmCLGu7QB

Ipswich town centre has recently had one of its major junctions re-vamped and part of that work involved the design and build of this cycle lane. The lane is designed so that cyclists go up the inside of stopped buses and are expected to gi ... [more]

Five sheffield stands for parking ten bikes in one car storage space. Shame the rest of the town is such a horrible place to cycle as evidenced by the hoardings behind, see #50412.

The centre of Ipswich is dominated by motor traffic and has horrors like these painted hoardings which suggest the place is like a motor racing circuit.

Cycleway uses pavement here in Ipswich.

This is 'Silent Street', Ipswich ... so it must be on a quiet route and indeed it is on NCN1 and NCN51! However at the time we took the photo there were lots of pneumatic drills hacking it up at the other end, as warned by the closure sign.

NCN1 signage.

Anti-pedestrian surface on this island - one of the worst ideas that transport planners have ever created. It just causes even more problems for walkers trying to cross here.

Dock Street, Ipswich on NCN1 is a contraflow cycle lane with double yellow lines.

The cycle track just suddenly stops and leaves you lost, rather than taking you back on to the road. See also #49605 2013-05-12 11.48.21-2 Location: St. Johns, Ipswich (England, United Kingdom)

When you use cycle route 51 from Ipswich Town outwards to Needham Market you may have issues finding this sign. Don't get tempted to proceed on along the Gipping river or you'll endup in a horrible No-Go area where copper thieves hide about ... [more]

Covered cycle racks

Elmy Cycles, St Helens Street, Ipswich.

Ranelagh Cycle Warehouse, Hadleigh Road.

Plenty of well signed cycle parking at the Hadleigh Road Sainsbury's.

Looking into Westgate Street. I think this means No Entry to cyclists between 10:30 am and 4:30 pm, and No Entry to other vehicles at any time.

Route 51 of the National Cycle Network runs along this section of shared cycle path / pavement on West End Road, Ipswich. Cyclists and pedestrians alike will often find their route blocked by thoughtless lorry drivers who park on the cycle ... [more]

Dropped Kerb please on Sirday Street Location: , Ipswich (England, United Kingdom) A bunch of dropped kerbs and cycle cut-throughs are needed all over this area as none were provided when the roads were blocked off.

This is confusing as the ACTUAL route 51 comes towards the camera and the route to Sproughton and Bramford is actually a link route to NCN1. UPDATE: This "cycle" path goes towards Sproughton for about 1/2 a mile before an "End of cycl ... [more]
