Part of my morning bicycle journey to WSM station involves a short jaunt through a pedestrian drumway traversing a rather rundown housing estate.

I'm not sure whether it has anything to do with the social status of the inhabitants of said estate but over time I've noticed a preponderance of dog dirt littering my path. Such is the frequency of this fouling that the path is more akin to a slalom course than a footpath.

Well , I've finally had enough & this morning I've taken matters into my own hands. Armed with a stick of white chalk I have encircled each offending item and annotated it with the words

DISGUSTING !
DISGUSTING !
DISGUSTING !

Come on Law makers, BRING BACK THE DOG LICENCE and don't make it 30p like before, make it £3000 so these layabouts and scroungers won't be able to afford a dog and I will be able to enjoy a TURD FREE cycle to the station in the mornings.

I don't often see it these days. When did this change happen? About 10 years ago?

Part of my morning bicycle journey to WSM station involves a short jaunt through a pedestrian drumway traversing a rather rundown housing estate.a) WTF is a 'drumway'?
b) Should you be cycling on the pavement at all?

Highway Code, rule 64 (http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_069837):

You MUST NOT cycle on a pavement. Their bold. Their CAPITALS.

Hmmm, you raise a very salient point there RC. Drumway is a term that I have been using all my life and have therefore taken it for granted that it was an expression in common parlance.

However, upon Googling the word, I have reached the conclusion that it is a colloquialism. Out of the relevant results returned (with my rather splendid OP being Nos. 1 & 2) the other references to the word seem to be contained in planning related douments on the websites of local authorities EXCLUSIVELY IN THE SOUTH WEST. I also note from my research that "Drumway" or "Drum Way" is occasionally the designated real noun appellation for some thoroughfares, again mostly in the south west. One would assume that these thoroughfares all exhibit the characteristics of the drumway referred to in my original post but hopefully without the dog excreta.

As a corollary to all this, I seem to recall that drumways are refered to as snicketts in some of the northern regions of these islands and I think an interesting discussion could ensue if members of the forum were to contribute their own colloquialisms for these pedestrian thoroughfares.

OK, I'll start.

We call them walkways or thoroughfares here.

You ignored the question suggesting you are a law-breaker:
