Residential roads like Clare Road tend to show fewer signs of change than main streets. Nevertheless there have been a few additions, most notably speed bumps and a single lane under the bridge with priority for traffic coming from this side.  The scene obviously appears different in winter and spring, but look how the trees on the right appear to be much smaller.

EWM says: In historic areas, I dislike intrusive signage, speed bumps, double yellow lines and modern street lamps, as they spoil my photographs. I accept that where road safety is concerned, there are different priorities, but are all these intrusive elements really necessary? Experiments have shown that motorists slow down in so-called 'naked streets' with no signs, lines or bumps.
