3 April 2009. A lot of work went into the scheme to improve the path from Campbell Road to High Road Tottenham. This included removing a diseased tree, adding some attractive paving, and giving an improved sightline.
But the best-laid schemes o' mice an' men gang aft agley.
As here, residents create their own desire path.
Or, less poetically, "systems of pedestrian trails will evolve over time". (Self-organizing Pedestrian Movement: Dirk Helbing, Péter Molnár, Illés J Farkas, Kai Bolay.)
