A record of deaths and injuries caused by cars on the B3212 and B3357 1st January – 30th June 2011

Animal Number Event
Pony 3 Killed
Sheep 5 Killed
Pony Foal 1 Injured
Cow 1 Injured


Apart from the fate of the animal concerned, hitting a large object does considerable damage to your car, so please drive at a speed appropriate to the conditions and drive particularly carefully on unfenced roads.

Dr. Keith Strelling collated the information provided by Graham Colton, Peek Hill Farm, Mary Alford, Moortown Farm, and Philip Abel of Higher Godsworthy. Thanks to all concerned.
