That is restricting access to a context name restricted, it's not the
same a resrticting access to a folder of a specific webapp.
Also, the allow is a coma separated list of regular expression. You
should probably use this for your allow:

***Thanks for this advice.  I didn't realise about the need for backslash. 
Given that I shouldn't be using a context path to define the folder, what 
should I be doing?
