The road continues to rise gradually for a number of kilometres then descends to reach a sharp left hand turn onto B3134 (Extreme Care - keep to the left hand side of the road, see safety note below *).

Safety Note*
We need to raise awareness of the crossroads at the junction with B3135 / B3134.  This would be known as Plummers Lane (Point 5 on map below but ID No. 10 on Risk Assessment).  This location is currently being looked into by Police, and other agencies, due to the fatal collisions which are occurring here.  Riders must not go wide when exiting left onto that junction, and they must keep to their side of the road.  Accredited Marshalls need to be aware of the speed of traffic using this road, in particular motorcycles.
