A DANGEROUS LANE. TO THE EDITOR. sir,—1 saw a letter in a Chester paper some time ago respecting a dangerous length vI :1"O<J,<! way at the end of Guilden Sutton-lane from Sutton Cover to Hewitt's cottage, on the Stam- ford Bridge and Chester main road, and it has occurred to me that the writer of that letter knew what he was writing about. I will try to describe the place. When driving from Guilden Sutton you get to a hollow in the road opposite the cover, at the bottom of which there is a water- course, over which there is a flat bridge. Thie bridge has recently been widened, and it is a great improvement. It was very narrow before and unprotected. A few yards further along the road is so narrow that a man on horseback could not pass a conveyance of any kind. Further along still, where it widens a little, there are awkward gutters or watercourses on each side against the cop, and when two conveyances meet one of the wheels of both conveyances must drop into the gutter and the driver must be careful how he gets out again, or run the risk of breaking his wheeL I have often wondered what would happen if a runaway horse was met there, say, by a conveyance in charge of women and children. I understand that people often have to back their horses out of the way of other conveyances, the drivers of which insist upon driving through. One day last year I myself met a farmer's lurry and two horses in this particular lane. The driver kindly drew into a ditch to allow me to pass. Perhaps some of your readers will pay a visit to the lane and see for themselves. Seeing is believing.—Yours, &c., A RATEPAYER. I
