Many of the footpaths on the West Howe estate (and also dotted about elsewhere in town) have been given names in the last couple of years, a safety initiative whose intention is that, in the event of calling for help, one's location can be more easily described. This one has been named Heathlands Walk, after the primary school serving the estate, just a minute's walk beyond the end of the path. The sign incorporates the logo of the school.
