SZ0894 : Winton: Brassey Road

Winton: Brassey Road
Winton: Brassey Road
One of the densely packed, early 20th century roads containing mainly detached houses with no off-road parking, Brassey Road is seen here from its junction with the main shopping street, Wimborne Road.

It is only the first hundred yards or so which falls within my 2km radius.

The sign is of the design dating from about 2009 when the modern emblem was adopted as a working logo for the council, in place of the borough coat of arms. It is a double-sided sign rather than the usual low-level version on two legs.

This is photo no.46 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
