SZ0795 : East Howe: Brook Road

taken 1 year ago, near to Kinson, Bournemouth, Great Britain

East Howe: Brook Road
East Howe: Brook Road
One of the original lanes of the area before the West Howe and East Howe council estates were built around it, Brook Road still retains a 'lany' feel. It is mainly council housing now, including semis such as the ones we see here and medium sized blocks of flats. This eastern end features an unusual dual carriageway section, and the sign is attached to the lamppost at the end of the central reservation.

This is photo no.54 of a series of 453 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
