Moordown: Elmes Road
Moordown: Elmes Road
Looking along this long road of typical-for-Moordown early-20th-century detached houses, from its one junction, midway along, with Comley Road. Elmes Road does a slight kink at this junction, but not in the direction indicated by the curve of the pavement: immediately next to us, it swings back the other way and carries on a few degrees the other side of straight.

The road sign is a standard one from around 2000-2006, perhaps a little earlier, featuring the borough coat of arms. It is one of the earliest of these examples, with slightly broader typeface and with the name on a single line.

This is photo no.128 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
