Jiggers Bank wins Road of the Day

From the BBC News Shropshire pages:
A Shropshire road which was closed in November by rockfalls is expected to remain shut for three more months. 
An emergency closure of Jiggers Bank in Ironbridge took place after rocks fell onto the road following heavy rain. It was followed by further rock falls. 
Telford and Wrekin Council said the "scale of works" needed to stabilise the area meant Jiggers Bank would be closed until June.
It will be little comfort to those affected, but Jiggers Bank has won this blog's prestigious Road of the Day award.

Now read and watch more about subsidence in the Ironbridge Gorge. (That invitation is perhaps more enticing than at first it appears.)
