Miscellaneous photos 4, Christchurch in May 2020
This page follows Miscellaneous photos 3, the 1960s. I took these photos in the late afternoon of May 1st 2020 in Christchurch on the Dorset coast.
Looking towards timber company premised past the railway bridge where Fairmile Road becomes Bargates. The lopped trees are on Stour Road.
The sequence starts from the railway bridge where Fairmile Road becomes Bargates, proceeds down to the High street, left onto Bridge Street, right onto Convent Walk to the quay, then towards Church Street with a minor diversion peeking over the garden wall of the Red House museum, then back up the High Street and Bargates.
This was during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, during which many shops were closed and pedestrians kept a two-metre distance apart, unless they were members of the same household.

See the photo labelled Gorky Park in Faina at the quay for the same place viewed from the gates out of view to the left of this photo.
Along Convent Walk approaching Place Mill
Sailing club. This is looking east (left) from the stone bridge over the mill stream at Place Mill — where the people are in the preceding photo.
Priory. This is looking to the west (right) from the stone bridge.
Boat moored in the quay with middle part of Hengistbury Head across the harbour
Cafe at the quay. This is taken from the same place as the preceding photo, but in the opposite direction.
Away from the quay. The hump in the road, which is also evident in the preceding photo, looks like a bridge, but it is just a hump.
Dinosaur in the Red House Museum garden
Tom’s Cafe on the corner of Church Street and Bridge Street. (The High street is to the left.) For many years this was the premises of an expensive ladies’ clothing store.
House in Bargates
Time to go home. The railway station viewed from the bridge.
