The Kink

The Kink - North to South

The Kink - South to North

In Milton there is an unusual planning anomaly - the main street (Union Street) has a kink in it.
Heading north on the main street the road moves a whole road-width to the west. The reason for the anomaly is disputed. A widely accepted view, but not the official view, states that the road was set out by two surveyors, one moving north and the other moving south, who each set out the road to the right of their survey line.
