Over the last few days what I think is a fox has left a 'present' for me
on the path leading up to the front door. Think it's a young one by the
size. I gave the path a good scrub with a strong smelling floor cleaner
yesterday - but it was there again this morning. Any tips on discouraging
If you walk round here late in the evening, you're likely to see as many
foxes as cats. ;-)

Fox poo has pointed ends. Like dogs they mark territory with piddle,
often on bits of litter.
I don't have any discouragement suggestions beyond the permanent ones
already put forward.
Foxes are regular and will visit at the same time each day. One goes
between my barns and triggers the lights at 9.00pm most days.

Wash the location with biological washing powder - it may take a couple of weeks. If that doesn't work then a commercial repellant but these also repel cats.
Electrified mesh fencing is effective but to catch foxes it has to be low enough to the ground to also catch hedgehogs - who don't run away but curl up, get multiply shocked and then die. :-(
You could also try deterrent feeding - a nice juicy chicken breast filled with tabasco.
