SZ0795 : East Howe: Merryfield Lane

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

East Howe: Merryfield Lane
East Howe: Merryfield Lane
A short dead-end road, but a through route for pedestrians cutting off the corner of Kinson Road and East Howe Lane. From the map or on the ground, it is easy to appreciate that this was an original track which would have cut off the same corner when these were all lanes. It retains the 'laney' feel.

The sign is a modern one, dating from around 2014-15, by which time the council had replaced the coloured logo, which had been prone to fading after a while, to simple wording BOURNEMOUTH BOROUGH COUNCIL in smaller type. It also refers to St. Merrin's Close, a short cul-de-sac of council semis.
