Let's Talk - - Postbag -

Ref­er­ence: my let­ter (April edi­tion), I asked if any­one knew when the num­ber of the Lynn to Guy­hirn part of the cur­rent A47 changed from its orig­i­nal num­ber 141 to its cur­rent num­ber A47.

A life­long Ter­ring­ton friend sug­gested that I could pos­si­bly an­swer my own ques­tion. My 1932 map shows that it was 141 and my 1946 map shows that it was A47.

My 1932 map shows that the 47 (not A47) from Wis­bech to Great Yar­mouth was via Down­ham (not Lynn) to Swaffham, Nor­wich, Acle then via Filby and Cais­ter to Yar­mouth and not along the Acle Straight road. TIM BRISTON Basingstoke Hamp­shire
