SZ0895 : Redhill: Jessopp Close

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

Redhill: Jessopp Close
Redhill: Jessopp Close
Just before 7am we look along Jessopp Close, a short, fairly steep cul-de-sac off the crest of Redhill Drive just as it heads down to meet Wimborne Road. We can glimpse the roof of one of the bungalows above the parked cars.

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 of this one has faded somewhat, though the white surface is intact unlike many.

This is photo no.215 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
