Did this road a couple of years ago when taking part in National Rally. It is a road with what I call 'rythmm' with lots of super-fast sweeping bends, without lots of silly little 'micky-mouse' corners. Route runs parallel with English/Welsh border and avoids ALL sizeable towns and most villages but does have a fair amount of interest from the boys in blue, so beware.
A new digital camera system is being tested (hidded between the bridges) travelling east towards the M6 from Crewe and Nantwhich Shavington areas. Slow down- The new system takes a perfect picture every time.
Very nice road with a good surface for 99% of the time. Mostly wide open corners which can be taken at 80+ but a few that might catch you out. Some towns/villages to go through - so respect the speed limits and don't piss people off. If you don't want to do the whole lot, you can go as far as the Clophill roundabout on the A6 then come back. You can also come off the A507 onto the A5120 through Flitwick and onto Houghton Regis. Another nice piece of road.
