SZ0995 : Muscliff: Granby Road

Muscliff: Granby Road
Muscliff: Granby Road
The bungalows on the northwest side of Granby Road back on to the riverside path of the Stour. Those on the main leg have boundary walls while those on this more easterly segment, turning 90 to come out on Muscliffe Lane, have no walls or fences.

We are looking from the 90 bend in the road, whose main course runs behind-left and behind-left. The section ahead is a little offshoot at that corner - hence the no-through-road sign.

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

This is photo no.170 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
