Why are there so few footpaths around Wilson?

Wilson, Leicestershire, is a small place about a mile from Melbourne (with a nice pub) but when you compare the two places Wilson comes off very poorly for footpaths.

However when you look at the old maps you can see that Wilson had a lot more in the past. Some today lead nowhere like the one heading past the mill.

Why did so few paths reach the Definitive Map?
Even tiny Isley Walton has more paths than Wilson.
