SZ0796 : Kinson: Kitscroft Road

Kinson: Kitscroft Road
Kinson: Kitscroft Road
At the eastern end of Kinson's main shops is Kitscroft Road, a short cul-de-sac which leads to several other roads, all of whose only access is via here. From satellite images, the little development looks almost unfinished, with a number of rather abrupt dead ends that look as if there was once an intention that development go further. At the end of Kitscroft Road, there is access onto Duke's Coppice and that small detached part of Kinson Common, which remains public open space.

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. The no-through-road sign incorporated into the nameplate is a common arrangement.

This is photo no.233 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
