SZ0894 : Ensbury Park: Cherries Drive

Ensbury Park: Cherries Drive
Ensbury Park: Cherries Drive
Cherries Drive is the southbound side of the Ensbury Park gyratory, and was put in in the mid 1980s when this became the A347, diverted from the main Wimborne Road through Moordown and Winton. The other three sides of the gyratory are formed from pre-existing roads. It is named, almost certainly, after the local football club, AFC Bournemouth, who are nicknamed the Cherries.

The sign is the standard Bournemouth nameplate from the 1980s, affixed with tubular steel which protrudes at each side.

This is photo no.70 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
