This is a lovely plant, pity about the spines, but no pain no gain.

Pity I planted it just too near the path, another one to move!!

Yes, Dotty, a common mistake with all sorts of spiky, sprawling and woody things. The best (worst) I have seen is a Cortaderia planted just on a path. The path disappeared after a while and a digger was needed to take out the Pampas grass.
