West Parley: Elm Tree Walk
West Parley: Elm Tree Walk
Looking along this short road which starts along the back of the Parley Cross shops and then has a 90 corner to arrive here at Ridgeway. We glimpse one of the bungalows which are typical of the area.

The sign is an ordinary East Dorset District one from the 80s, mounted on original pyramid-topped stone posts from a previous sign, probably one of the Wimborne & Cranborne Rural District Council ones such as here: SY9499 : Sturminster Marshall: a Newton Road sign.

This is photo no.130 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
