SZ0794 : East Howe: Ibbett Road

East Howe: Ibbett Road
East Howe: Ibbett Road
Ibbett Road forms part of a small layout of roads to the north of Kingswell Road, ending at Hadow Road which contains the local schools, Kingsleigh Primary and The Bourne Academy (previously Kingsleigh Secondary). Hadow and Ibbett are named after men who were part of the Borough's Education Committee around the time that the schools were built in the 1950s (and I suspect Bennion may have been too, as this is the name of the road which links the two).

The road sign is a standard one from around 2000, featuring the borough coat of arms, and one of the earliest of these given the emboldened typeface most have a less harsh typeface and a background less prone to discoloration.

This is photo no.212 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
