Howletts, and Portlympye in Kent also have foot paths ways going
through the middle, Its seams to be quite common. Howletts has a
bridge over the zoo path with a bell for people unable to use the
bridge (so they can be escorted through the part in the zoo)

I have no plans to go and micro-map these at the moment.
