Looking out for toads


As Church Road hits Latchmere Lane and turns sharply north toward Ham Gate there is a stark warning that we may encounter toads (not frogs as I first thought). I suspect we are meant to worry more about their safety more than our own but as I have never encountered any there I cannot comment on their ferocity.
