East Howe: Leedam Road
East Howe: Leedam Road
A short cul-de-sac of semi-detached council houses off Western Avenue. Its dead end leads into the corner of SZ0795 : East Howe: Puck’s Dell.

The sign is of a design that became prevalent in Bournemouth around 1990 and was in use for most of that decade. Many are starting to look a bit shabby now, with the blue border fading and the white surface peeling. The blue is going a bit on this one but the white is in good nick.

This is photo no.240 of a series of 453 in my coronavirus lockdown walking project:

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
