Designation: Public footpath

SZ1092 : Malmesbury Park: footpath D07 to nowhere by Chris Downer
This must be the most useless footpath in the land. Apart from being completely overgrown, it doesn't lead anywhere anyway. Just 14 metres and a dead end.

It did have a purpose before the roads here were realigned and severed to make way for the main A338 in the 1970s. Henville Road was previously a Y-shaped road, and this path cut the corner off within the centre junction of the 'Y'.



Number: D08
Designation: Public footpath
Length: 64m
Route: Shelbourne Road [SZ 1034 9261] to Capstone Road [SZ 1037 9267]
Map:

SZ0992 : Springbourne: footpath D09 to Corporation Road by Chris Downer
SZ0992 : Springbourne: footpath D09 to Holdenhurst Road by Chris Downer
This is an unusual path in that it heads through an arch in a row of shops, the flats above continuing over the path. We see it from the rear here, in Corporation Road, which doesn't have any addresses on this side - just the rear yards of the Holdenhurst Road shops.



Number: D10
Designation: Public footpath
Length: 39m
Route: Christchurch Road [SZ 0980 9139] to Weston Drive [SZ 0981 9135]
Map:
1:50,000 Modern Day Landranger(TM) Map © Crown Copyright
Commentary: Route runs along office driveway and through a small arch between two garages.
SZ0991 : Bournemouth: footpath D10 from Christchurch Road by Chris Downer SZ0991 : Bournemouth: footpath D10 to Weston Drive by Chris Downer SZ0991 : Bournemouth: footpath D10 goes through an arch by Chris Downer
SZ0991 : Bournemouth: the end of Weston Drive by Chris Downer
The view from Weston Drive. The two garages look as if they belong to the same premises, so one might not realise that the archway between them is a public right of way.



Number: D11
Designation: Public footpath
Length: 71m
Route: Christchurch Road [SZ 0976 9138] to D10 [SZ 0981 9136]
