This led us to a tavern/restaurant where the proprietor showed us where we were on the map I had been anxiously perusing, and when the wife came out, she said to follow her car because she could get us back to the M4 which hopefully would not be closed this far down. And so it was that we got back to London.
Once again, the locals had saved the day. I recommend that they be consulted for every need. However, when someone tells you that the road to the place you want to go is “well sign-posted,” take it with a grain of salt.
