Promenade pedestrian crossings

I was reading a fascinating article about botanical gardens over on the BBC News website earlier this morning. I think we should turn all these eyesores into botanical gardens. http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-41388144

Would be nice, but if you can't race a motorbike around in there or get pissed in a tent, there will be little interest from the government TBH.

Well, anything built post-1950, yes.

Especially that God awful precinct.

Yes it is a bit, well, weird to say the least.

There isn't, if you proceed along the COAST.

Except maybe the two crossings located near the Castle Mona and on Queens Prom by promenade t-shirts...

What crossing at Castle Mona? The one across from the TT shirts shop which has been there for years has recently been removed.

The one near the Castle Mona is practically opposite the old Imperial Hotel.

When did the crossing on Queens Prom disappear? Can only be in the last couple of weeks if it really has gone?

When I mentioned Jak's you said it had been removed yet originally you said the one by tower house  and the one by the TT shop had gone?

The one at Jak's is the one by Tower House. We're talking about the same one. It's disappeared.

And yes, the one by the TT shop has disappeared too. TT shop, as in the one further on up the promenade, not the little shop by Sam Webb's.

They put bags over the traffic lights about 2 months ago.

I don't know when it disappeared, but it has.

Er, I'm getting confused now, there's a crossing at Jak's and one at Quids inn isn't there?

I can't remember. There's one at the Methodist Church, then there USED TO BE one further along opposite a pub. I don't know which pub it is.

Are you for real? M&S is full of the biggest 4x4s. I've never seen one that can't fit. You need to lay off the shrooms, Jess.

The trick is to get the horses to duck; sometimes they don't and that is the mane cause of the problem.
