Hanging Chapel: No Through Road?

No Through Road

The Hill in Langport may be closed to vehicles in future, which would mark the end of the short cut towards Yeovil.
A proposal has been made to make this a "No Through Road" with the possible installation of bollards on either side of the Hanging Chapel. The reason given is that the Hanging Chapel and Medieval Gateway is a Grade 1 Listed Building and a Scheduled Monument under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979. Throughout the years it has been damaged by lorries with two incidents causing significant damage in recent months. The road is steep and narrow in places, which has resulted in parked cars being damaged by passing vehicles.
Local residents have been asked to submit their views and we are awaiting the results of the consultation.
