SZ0596 : Bear Cross: Anchor Close

taken 1 year ago, near to Bearwood, Poole, Great Britain

Bear Cross: Anchor Close
Bear Cross: Anchor Close
Looking north from Anchor Close, at an odd junction layout where Anchor Road and Close sort of rebound off each other. Anchor Close, unlike Anchor Road, is council housing including blocks of flats and terraced houses.

The sign is a slightly misproportioned version of the standard one from around 2000, screwed into the wall of a small playground rather than mounted on two posts.

This is photo no.8 of a series of 451 in my coronavirus lockdown walking project:

My coronavirus lockdown walking project :: SZ0795

In response to the global coronavirus pandemic, on 23 March 2020 the government announced a lockdown which effectively confined people to their homes, apart from essential journeys which included vital shopping, to help vulnerable people, and one period of exercise per day.

There was speculation about whether driving to a place of exercise, such as a beauty spot, was acceptable and guidelines were quickly made, that exercise should take place locally and direct from home.

So I drew a 2km radius around my home on a map and set out to walk along, across or past every named street and footpath within this circle.

I found that there are 451 such roads/paths, not including roads whose postal address is part of another road already included (such as some Courts, Terraces and Mews).

I undertook to take a photo of a sign for each one, mainly with some context of the road itself. They can all be viewed, along with my 2km map, here: Link
