Modern Ryton has an interesting character; the now dual carriageway A45 creates two villages in one, with the halves linked by a subway. The Church Road side is somewhat quieter, although with the exit from the A45 nearby there was no way I was going to stand in the centre of the road to get the exact same camera angle as a hundred years previously, however quiet the road itself was!
