• The B5105 was originally built by the Ordovice – an ancient tribe who specialised in building odd-numbered roads going an odd number of miles to and odd number of odd places, or to nowhere terribly interesting.

 • An amazingly safe place to be a cat, the B5105. The same cannot be said for motorcyclists who come here annually in their droves to test their theories on the after-life.
