Good stuff. There's a few duplicate features, unconnected or untagged 
ways and unneeded names, but I'll leave these to be corrected if there's 
another mapping session. Also a fixme on the B792 under the railway - 
Mapillary coverage is present but the maxheight could be surveyed.

Next challenge is what to do about the A71 bridge closure and other 
changes for 3 months in January!
