Photo #177378

[Image taken 6.1.22]. Outline of man in winter layers to show his approximate width - 65cm - at the widest point (shoulders). Compare this with the space available at Hob Moor, York, obstructions: #177337. The metal plates are constricting, intimidating and claustrophobic. The barriers restrict access to a historic open space. They prevent active travel for some people and restrict it for others. They make it unattractive for most. The myriad barriers like these around the city discourage people from taking responsibility for their own mental and physical health. Such physical barriers in the urban environment are also barriers to reducing preventable conditions resulting from inactivity and isolation. Other examples of barriers in York see: #173447, #174097.
