Summary

Description
English: Give Peas A Chance. A well known bit of graffiti on the Amersham viaduct which now days crosses the M25 just north of the M40. I wonder whether the Victorian engineers who built it to carry a railway across a stream had a crystal ball since 70 years later the arches were wide enough for a three lane motorway to pass underneath.

This view is constantly changing as an extra lane is currently (Feb 2010) being added to the M25. See 334301 for a much earlier view as well as slightly different wording.

Oh yes, and for the regular contributors to the site, this is my 14,000th photo to be uploaded!
