SZ0795 : Ensbury Park: Beverley Gardens

Ensbury Park: Beverley Gardens
Ensbury Park: Beverley Gardens
The parked van allows us only a glimpse along this snaking no-through road, but that glimpse tells us that it consists of desirable detached houses and is not a modern cul-de-sac like many of the infill developments in the area.

The sign also tells us that the road isn't modern: it looks like an ordinary 1980s sign mounted on tubular steel (such as the one at SZ0795 : Ensbury Park: Barnes Close), but careful scrutiny will tell us that the lettering and black border is embossed in the metalwork and not put on adhesively like the more modern variety. This makes it one of the older, perhaps 1960s, nameplates.

This is photo no.39 of a series of 451 in my coronavirus lockdown walking project:

My coronavirus lockdown walking project

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
