SZ0895 : Northbourne: Headswell Crescent

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

Northbourne: Headswell Crescent
Northbourne: Headswell Crescent
Headswell Crescent forms a standard crescent shape off the eastern side of Headswell Avenue, but at this southern end also crosses it to meet Saxonhurst Road, the next road behind us. It is typical Northbourne - decent, desirable detached housing and a mix of houses and bungalows.

The sign is a modern one - it is only in the last couple of years that Bournemouth Borough Council stopped including its name in smaller type at the top of the sign, perhaps in readiness for local government reorganisation in April 2019 which saw the borough council replaced by BCP (Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole) council.

This is photo no.186 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
