The trend with large blocks was to site houses well back leaving a large garden area which hides the houses from view. Sometimes the only indication of habitation is a lych gate opening through a verdant flora experience.
Fortunately, footpaths are provided for foot traffic. In the mid-section, in a particular steep section, an elevated walkway has been built on the high side of the avenue which gives a tunnel appearance with overhanging vegetation. It is 400 metres in length and could be considered a walk within a walk.
At ground level, a barking dog appeared a few metres away. It would look at me, bark a few times then run forward a few metres and repeat the process. A rare occurrence these days seeing an unaccompanied dog on the street.
