This was the scene as I knew it for as long as I can remember as a driver of nearly fifty-years. But it is no-longer like this. The A1 now takes a different path around this A63 junction. Two-years ago, I made the trip to see a relative in Doncaster. My total confusion started at the revised A63 junction, and was made worse when the Ferrybridge Power-Station appeared on my left, instead of to my right where it had always been. I thought to myself - "Now that's a clever trick, moving a Power Station!" Beat that, David Copperfield.
