Running from Benedict-road to Morden-road, Dragmire Lane is a footpath according to Borough Engineer’s Department, after a case at the police court on December 11th 1935 re Walter Richards, Homewood-road summoned for cycling on it.
Mr Isaac Wilson, chairman, dismissed the case as there was some conflict over the case. Defendant said it was used as a road by carts. Borough Engineer said it was a path under the 1932 Rights of Way act.
