Britain’s best roundabout named

23rd October 2012

While many drivers may not give it much thought, the state of the nation's roundabouts is serious business for some.

The UK Roundabout Appreciation Society (UKRAS) is so passionate about Britain's roads; it has named a roundabout in north Yorkshire as the most impressive in the country.

The traffic island situated in a residential estate near York is home to a Grade II listed windmill.

Kevin Beresford, president of the UKRAS, described the Holgate Windmill roundabout as a "work of art".

He said: "I've travelled from John O'Groats to Land's End for the perfect gyratory and now I think I've found it.

"It's spectacular. It will take some beating to surpass. It proves that anything can go on a roundabout."

Visitors to the attraction would be wise not to become overawed with the structure and should remember the government's advice that "on approaching a roundabout take notice and act on all the information available to you".
