SZ0790 : Westbourne: footpath A05 has been usurped by Poole by Chris Downer
The brick wall to the left of the path is the borough boundary and the path, at the end of the visible stretch, turns left. Thus, only this first 40m stretch is in Bournemouth.

The continuing Poole footpath 63 (Poole's numbering does not use letter prefixes) heads down to Branksome Dene Chine. The whole footpath is 430m in length.

SZ0791 : Westbourne: skew-whiff steps on footpath A10 by Chris Downer
This passageway is a steep one, not exactly mountainous but it does lead to Snowdon Road.

The series of short flights of steps are all in good condition and there is a pleasing symmetry - except for this flight, which has been put out of shape by the tree roots alongside it.

SZ0792 : Talbot Woods: footpath A13 is pointed out by Chris Downer
I like this sign. I don't know why. Maybe it's the homemade simplicity of it. But I think it's because we are so far down the path that you no longer need a sign.

Maybe it was different when the sign was put up.

SZ0792 : Talbot Woods: footpath A15 reaches East Avenue by Chris Downer
This is the only right of way numbered under Bournemouth Borough Council that strays outside of the borough boundary. However, the two ends are both in Bournemouth. The boundary is the backs of gardens along here, and the wooden fence at the end of the road, pictured here. We are therefore looking across to Bournemouth from Poole.

SZ0792 : Talbot Woods: footpath A17 is through that gap by Chris Downer
This footpath has a sudden change from suburban to rural - it goes through the gap to the left of the hedge. It looks rather tiny but comfortably accommodates a person! It is deceptive, perhaps because the pavement is a little wider than usual.
