SZ0794 : Ensbury Park: Dawn Close

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

Ensbury Park: Dawn Close
Ensbury Park: Dawn Close
Dawn Close, like many of the roads around here, consists of desirable bungalows and its corner has a widened triangular piece of tarmac which limits our view along the road at the same time as seeing the sign.

The sign is the standard Bournemouth nameplate from the 1980s, affixed with tubular steel which protrudes at each side. The use of a full-size no-through-road sign on a short post alongside the nameplate is quite a common arrangement in Bournemouth.

This is photo no.100 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
