SZ0794 : Ensbury Park: Cornish Gardens

Ensbury Park: Cornish Gardens
Ensbury Park: Cornish Gardens
At the heart of the 1970s council housing estate at Slades Farm, recognisably by the terraced houses seen in the background. Cornish Gardens and its neighbour, Hibberd Way, form a sort of crescent that is walkable but not driveable, with that curious feature of 70s estates with complicated house numbering along right-angled terraces.

The sign is a modern one, from 2010-15 when this more modern, abstract emblem rather than the traditional town coat of arms as the working logo of the council.

This is photo no.88 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
