Fully implemented in release 9.28 on 8 October 2016.

The "access to the towpath" status should be reflected on the gazetteer page.

It is. It is shown for all places with confirmed access, for all places where you'd expect there to be access and it is confirmed that there isn't, and for all places where you'd expect there to be access but the status is unknown.

See attached screenshots (confirmed access, no access where you'd expect it, unknown status but would expect it).

It doesn't, for example, show that there is unlikely to be access at a motorway bridge, nor do I believe it should.

I changed [ICI Works Pipebridge No 4] from "unknown" to "no" but there is no reference to this in the gazetteer.


Nick Atty (administrator)

That's right. You wouldn't expect there to be access to the towpath at a pipe bridge, so there is no point cluttering the page up with that information. If there was it would be noteworthy and worth reporting. Similarly a minor road bridge without access is noteworthy.

All "yes" access is reported, and all "no" where you'd often find it. It's working exactly how I want it to.


Shultzy (updater)

I understand your reasoning. Should all places without "Bridge" in the name not have the option for towpath access? I've checked this place [Middleton Railway Aqueduct], which has the text "There may not be access to the towpath here." which is not necessary.
