Isle of Wight

On a recent trip to the Isle of Wight, I noticed that the footpaths often had numbers on them, written on the signs, for example here’s a picture I took of Footpath BS76 st map reference SZ 397 840. This strikes me a as a very good idea; it makes navigating on foot possible without referring to the map so often.  If we number roads in this way, why not also footpaths.

There were still a few squares left to grab on the Isle of Wight this year, but I suspect when I return next year they will have all been taken.  The South is fast filling up on Geograph now, and I think I probably would need to drive for more than an hour to find a square that hasn’t already been photographed.
