"Desire path" into Withybush retail park (2)
For as long as I have been coming to this small out-of-town shopping centre, when on foot I have made use of this unofficial way in that leads through a gap in the fence and down a bank into the car park. The only alternative for pedestrians is to use the pavement that follows the vehicular access road, clearly judged by many to be an unnecessary detour.
These short cuts that ignore planned routes are known as 'desire paths' as they constitute the shortest way to where one wants to go and they may cross landscaped features such a lawns and flowerbeds. Sometimes planners wait until walkers or cyclists have chosen their optimal routes before creating formal versions. Attempts to block the use of desire-paths is usually unsuccessful although in this case mending the fence might stop all but the most determined. See LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link
