West Parley: Gallows Drive
West Parley: Gallows Drive
Gallows Drive is at the very corner of the gridsquare and also at the very limit of my 2km radius from home. The sign here is a modern one with the logo of East Dorset District Council, which was absolved in the Local Government Reorganisation of April 2019 when Dorset became a unitary authority and the districts under it were abolished.

This is photo no.155 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
