Lockdown Walks from my Door, Part Two.

by Gethin Thomas July. 03, 2020 721 views

We are increasingly coming out of lockdown now. At it's peak we were only allowed to leave our homes in emergencies or to buy food or medicine. We were allowed one walk for exercise per day and it had to be from your home. You could not travel somewhere else to walk, even though there are beaches three miles away. Beach access was blocked and car parks closed.

Having only recently moved to the area this meant a lot of new exploration and I was lucky that there were many places to walk and things to photograph while walking. More recently as restrictions are slowly lifted I have ventured a bit wider. Here is a selection.

Some local businesses in construction at empty properties are allowed to carry on work. Here a skip is filled with rubbish, including a hand made rug.
