SZ0796 : Kinson: Keeble Road

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

Kinson: Keeble Road
Kinson: Keeble Road
Keeble Road always was a short cul-de-sac off Kinson Park Road, leading to a sports ground. In the later 1980s the sports ground was developed for housing and Keeble Road thus extended. Here, we are at the T-shaped end of the road, with odd numbers around the left arm and evens around the right.

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 with the blue border fading and the white surface unpeeling, but this one is in pretty good nick if a little dirty. Extra messages, such as the odd/even message here, are always in that different typeface from the street name.

This is photo no.220 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
