Overly prescriptive start and end points
I live in Torbay. The Torquay end of walks is (logically) Torquay train station, a stone’s throw from the coast, but the best part of an hour’s walk for me. Depending on where the routes are going, they can go more or less past my house or fan out in another direction.
My gripe is twofold. Firstly, am I expected to walk to the official start and then walk to, say, Newton Abbot? Advice elsewhere on these boards is to review routes in their entirety, not in part, which seems to me overly restrictive.
Secondly, virtually no Torquinians will be walking from Torquay train station as we all live inland from it. There seems to be little flexibility to accommodate people who want to walk from a centre of population, but not the centre of that centre. Do all routes really need to begin and end at fixed points? If I have this issue in Torquay I’m sure others have it magnified in the hundreds of towns larger than mine.
