SZ0995 : Muscliff: Cox Close

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

Muscliff: Cox Close
Muscliff: Cox Close
Cox Close is the grey line which separates the original mid-20th-century housing of Muscliff and the vast early-1980s estate. It is accessed off Cox Avenue, and is the only road on the more modern estate to be named after one of the older roads. It comes to a dead end ahead of us but has pedestrian access to the similar dead end of Moreton Close - all the roads behind us on the large estate are named after Dorset villages.

The sign is really most useful for the pedestrian arriving here from the path that runs left-to-right across the picture. It is a modern one, probably put up in the last five years or so when the borough dropped its logo from street nameplates.

This is photo no.93 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
