SZ0696 : Bear Cross: Longfield Drive

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

Bear Cross: Longfield Drive
Bear Cross: Longfield Drive
A very short road linking the main Wimborne Road with Cudnell Avenue, which runs parallel with Wimborne Road and has a dead end at both ends. Immediately in front of us is a service road serving the odd numbers 1761 to 1823 Wimborne Road, comfortably the highest house numbers in the area.

Longfield Drive, meanwhile, almost need not be named, since it contains no addresses at all.

The road sign is a standard one from around 2000-2006, perhaps a little earlier, featuring the borough coat of arms.

This is photo no.246 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
