So have you ever been to Swindon?

Swindon is the home of the so-called MAGIC ROUNDABOUT.

Now if you don’t know, but truly this marvel of ingenious traffic control is enough to send almost anyone dippy.

It’s 7 roundabouts in one consisting of 5 mini roundabouts on a roundabout which itself is one big roundabout. Confused?

It gets worsens the traffic flow around the inner circle is anti-clockwise while the traffic flows in the usual clockwise manner around each of the 5 mini-roundabouts.

The whole technological masterpiece has sat-navs in total confusion.   

Take for example these instructions issued by a sat-nav : –

“Head north west

“Exit the roundabout onto the magic roundabout.

“Head east towards the magic roundabout.

“Exit the roundabout onto the magic roundabout.”

“In 15 yards, at the roundabout take the first exit and stay on the magic roundabout.”

Well personally I don’t think I’ll be going to Swindon anytime soon – at least until there’s a bypass!

Of course being a Tuesday I was joined once more by Margaret Mills who explained all about the connection between Colchester and HUMPTY DUMPTY.

In fact it appears that the original “HUMPTY DUMPTY” was actually a gun installed by royalists in Colchester in 1645 with a view to defending the town from the forces of the parliamentarians.

Listen again here to what Margaret had to say on this subject: –

See you again next week,
