SZ0795 : East Howe: Howeth Road

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

East Howe: Howeth Road
East Howe: Howeth Road
Howeth Road is quite a long, and major, side-road of the East Howe / Ensbury Park area and, I think, may be one of the traditional track route from before the area was built over.

The reason I say this is the generally meandering course that it takes, and the fact that as it approaches East Howe Lane, ahead, it turns into a curious dual carriageway with mature trees lining the middle. This surely suggests a field boundary of some sort?

The housing is mainly good detached houses, mixed with a few bungalows such as those on the left-hand side ahead.

The sign is the standard Bournemouth nameplate from the 1980s, this one affixed high on a lamppost rather than the more usual position just above ground level.

My coronavirus lockdown walking project

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
