The city of Lawton (Pawnee: Raaríhtaaruʾ) is the county seat of Comanche County, in the State of Oklahoma. Located in southwestern Oklahoma, about 87 mi (140 km) southwest of Oklahoma City, it is the principal city of the Lawton, Oklahoma Metropolitan Statistical Area. According to the 2010 census, Lawton’s population was 96,867, making it the fifth-largest city in the state.
Built on former reservation lands of Kiowa, Comanche, and Apache Indians, Lawton was founded on August 6, 1901, and was named after Major General Henry Ware Lawton, a Civil War Medal of Honor recipient who was killed in action in the Philippine–American War. Lawton’s landscape is typical of the Great Plains, with flat topography and gently rolling hills, while the area north of the city is marked by the Wichita Mountains.

A50 – Church Lawton to Arclid – Front View

The A50 runs from Leicester to Warrington, but originally ran to Hockliffe just north west of Luton. Between Stoke-on-Trent and the M1 near Nottingham, the A50 is a major dual carriageway, but the rest of the road has largely been superceded by other roads.

The section of A50 through Cheshire was once the main trunk road running north-south prior to the construction of the M6 in the 1960s. There were frequent delays through Holmes Chapel and Knutsford. The M6 was built, bypassing the A50 which became a road largely for local traffic, but its wide single-carriageway in places hints at its former status.

This video shows a northbound journey along the A50 from Church Lawton to the A534 junction at Arclid. It is available in three versions:
