Parking rights have existed by means of lease or licence for quite a long period of time. On the other hand, until quite recently, whether a right to park was recognisable in the form of an easement had been much more ambiguous. In this area of the law Batchelor v. Marlow  is the leading case; it has been effectively used to clarify the subject. The case is known best for approving the test devised by Judge Paul Baker QC in the High Court case of London and Blenheim Estates Ltd v. Ladbroke Retail Parks Ltd . This test acknowledged that the right to park could exist an easement provided that it would not ‘leave the servient without any reasonable use of his land’. Having been approved in the Court of Appeal, the test remains binding on inferior courts despite certain criticisms concerning its efficacy in deciding whether an easement of parking should or should not be granted.
Ancillary Case: Kettel v. Bloomfold Ltd
Owing to Batchelor’s importance in the granting of easements, the test has been applied in a variety of recent cases. Kettel v. Bloomfold Ltd  is a case in which the test played a major role in granting an easement over parking spaces designated for use by the lessees of flats owned by the defendant. HH Judge David Cooke found upon application of the test that such a right would not ‘leave the servient owner without reasonable use of his land’3; meaning that a right to park could indeed be established as an easement.
In terms of similarity between the two cases there are two clear points of correspondence. Most notably, during both proceedings it was accepted the fact that there are circumstances under which the right to park may exist as an easement. Kettel is ...

- Darkness, in whatever form, exists in the hearts of all mankind no matter what race, religion, or background.

In Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, the author uses the Congo River as a symbol to show the importance of Interiors and Exteriors in Marlow’s journey and ultimately how he is able to resist the darkness within himself. It is apparent that the Congo River functions as the connection between Marlow and the one place that he truly feels at home – the Ocean.... [tags: Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad, Charles Marlow]
