SZ0695 : West Howe: Heathlands Walk

West Howe: Heathlands Walk
West Howe: Heathlands Walk
One of those grass-lined paths which are quite common in council estates of the era, this one is towards the west of the large 1950s West Howe estate. It links Maclean Road (where we are standing) and Mandale Road (ahead).

It is a public footpath, and is discussed in more detail in this wider view from behind us: SZ0695 : West Howe: footpath U08 from Maclean Road including the fairly recent naming of such paths.

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.

This is photo no.190 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
