SZ0995 : Moordown: Lawford Road

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

Moordown: Lawford Road
Moordown: Lawford Road
A short road which originally cut the corner between the major roads Wimborne Road and Castle Lane West, although the latter end has been closed to traffic since at least the early 1980s. It has a few houses on each side but this view is dominated by a tall fence for the flat above a former hairdresser's in the corner building.

The sign is the standard Bournemouth nameplate from the 1980s, more often seen close to ground level, affixed with tubular steel which protrudes at each side, but here attached high on a lamppost.

This is photo no.236 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
