SZ0796 : Kinson: Howton Road

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

Kinson: Howton Road
Kinson: Howton Road
A short dead-end road off Kitscroft Road, almost at the dead end of the latter. On a map, the road layout of these few roads looks as if more was planned but never built. The bungalows on the right back onto a portion of Kinson Common, still open public land.

The sign is a modern one, from 2010-15 when this more modern, abstract emblem rather than the traditional town coat of arms as the working logo of the council. It is quite surprising that there is even a sign on this side of the junction, since it is only visible to those approaching from the dead end of Kitscroft Road. The more useful one on the other side, visible to the motorist arriving here from the whole of the rest of the world, adds 'leading to Howton Close'.

This is photo no.209 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
