SZ0596 : Bear Cross: Duck Lane

taken 2 years ago, near to Kinson, Bournemouth, Great Britain

Bear Cross: Duck Lane
Bear Cross: Duck Lane
A road around the periphery of the West Howe housing estate that manages to retain a rural feel. It contains a couple of blocks of council flats at the other end, opposite the entrance to Oak Academy, the local secondary school.

The road sign is a mini version of the standard one from around 2005, such as at SZ0695 : West Howe: Draper Road, but the top half of the sign is blank, rather than containing the logo. As this sign would face the sun only in the morning, I doubt that it has faded when the rest of the sign is fine!

This is photo no.116 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
