Edna Walling Lane becomes a divided road half way along with a beautiful centre plantation - one side leads to Devon Cottage and the other to The Barn. For the convenience of the postie and visitors, the mail boxes are both located where the road divides rather than on the property boundaries. Unfortunately, this means that just about every time the Council's contractor resurfaces Bickleigh Vale Rd and the Lane, they miss out the divided part - probably believing its actually driveways rather than Council property.
With the village Open Garden happening a month from now, and with five properties banding together to get their driveways re-surfaced, we also decided to re-surface Edna Walling Lane our of our community fund.
The end result looks terrific and after a shower or two and a few weeks to settle down, should look even better.
