Moordown: McWilliam Road
Moordown: McWilliam Road
A short road, more of a lane with no pavements either side and ending at an old thatched cottage, one of few very old buildings to survive among the more modern suburbia (see SZ0994 : Moordown: thatched cottage in McWilliam Road).

The sign is one of the first to include the borough logo, by the look of it, dating from around 2000.

This is photo no.241 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
