SZ0694 : Ensbury Park: Columbia Road

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

Ensbury Park: Columbia Road
Ensbury Park: Columbia Road
One of the main thoroughfares of Bournemouth's northern suburbs, this is one of the longest roads in my 2km circle and we are looking at it from the pedestrian island of the little roundabout at its western end. The lockdown restrictions provide us with an image containing only one car almost unthinkable in daylight hours!

The sign is a more or less standard one from recent times, affixed to the lamppost on the traffic island. As it is in the middle of the road, it is double-sided.

This is photo no.77 of a series of 453 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
