SZ0795 : Northbourne: Fletcher Road

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

Northbourne: Fletcher Road
Northbourne: Fletcher Road
A short east-west road linking Howeth Road and Green Lane, used occasionally as a sort of cut-through only occasionally because this is one of those areas where none of the roads goes fully between any of the major roads so you have to keep doing a left-right, and it would possibly have been just as quick therefore to stick to the bigger roads in the first place!

The sign is of a design that became prevalent in Bournemouth around 1990 and was in use for most of that decade. Many are starting to look a bit shabby now, and the blue border has faded to nothing on this one.

This is photo no.145 of a series of 453 in my coronavirus lockdown walking project:

My coronavirus lockdown walking project

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
