point 4 on the turn by turn takes you onto Beck Lane. This is a ford, it is often too deep for cycling. OSM has it as a ford - so doesn't need amending. You might want to block that off on your route planning machine.



PS Love the site, it is so useful.

Why not use the bridge, or does that become impassable too?

Interesting point – thanks. OSM doesn’t usually differentiate between “get your wheels a bit wet” and “likely to drown” fords but it should be possible to give them some sort of penalty. I’ll look into it. (Though as Graham says I think in practice I’d probably just go round the side!)
