SZ0894 : Redhill: Delhi Road

Redhill: Delhi Road
Redhill: Delhi Road
Looking along this side-road from Redhill Avenue, opposite Redhill Park. It is the northerly of the three 'prongs' forming a fork-shaped layout with Middleton Road the middle one and Elmes Road the southern one, which latter extends eastward to form the fork's handle. Comley Road runs at 90 and links the three roads.

No other roads in the area have an obvious Indian connection in their names, so I don't know how the name Delhi came about.

The houses are typical of the area - fine detached houses built in the earlier decades of the 20th century. The fact that we can only glimpse them tells its own story: the houses were built before off-road parking was a consideration.

The road sign is a standard one from around 2000-2006, perhaps a little earlier, featuring the borough coat of arms.

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
