SZ0994 : Moordown: King Edward Avenue

Moordown: King Edward Avenue
Moordown: King Edward Avenue
One of three consecutive monarchical avenues in Moordown, King George and Queen Mary Avenues being parallel to the south. They comprise typical Moordown housing - decent detached houses from the reign of Edward and the Georges in the 20th century.

The sign is an old cast-iron one from the 1950s, not exactly a rarity but nice to see surviving, refixed to a more modern fence.

This is photo no.221 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
