Is there any law against walking through the market stalls?

LAST Thursday, whilst I was out in Wisbech town centre and waiting on my husband, I came out of WH Smith and crossed over to the market stalls.

I walked at the back of the fish mongers van then proceeded to get to the post box near TG Hughes.

A woman said ‘are you all right’ I said yes, walked little further then a man said ‘are you all right’. Once more I said yes. I am disabled and walking with a stick.

The man then said in a rude manner ‘you are walking through my stall’. I said in a shaky voice ‘sorry I am going to the post box’.

I told my husband when he came from his appointment. He said he did not think this was private land.

Can someone tell me please what the law is about walking through the market place - is there a law against walking amongst the traders’ stalls?

I have done this in the past and no-one has said anything like that to me before. Maybe he thought some disabled pensioner was going steal his wares.
