Feet Begin to Crumble – a Blog about Road Surface signs.
For this blog I will look at signs painted on the road surface, what the USA would call the ‘pavement.’ My other related blog, Blog  is about signs on what we in the UK call the pavement but the USA calls the ‘sidewalk.’ And both are linked to  Road re-surfacing.
I have collected at random few dozen pictures just by photographing the road surface, almost all from my home town of Cheltenham and I will try to sort then into a vaguely sensible order.
They nearly all consist of words and they tell motorists where to go. I will start with a few that just point directions.
Reminders of speed limits.
Then some that separate the cars from busses, coaches, taxis, emergency vehicles etc.
(Coach stop number 4)
(This one has points nearby to recharge the electric vehicles.)
Some notices are about parking and car parks, many saying NO PARKING!
(Reserved for house number 13)
Some are for pedestrians and cyclists.
This hump is at a cycle crossing.
Here are some more unusual ones.
By the beach at Bournemouth. (We visit in the winter so we never actually see the Land Train!)
Outside the Municipal Offices at Cheltenham.
Finally a standard ‘Give Way’ marking at a junction, freshly painted.
The title, as for number  is from the single ‘Concrete and Clay’ by the UK pop band ‘Unit 4 + 2’ from 1965. It was number one in the charts but was the only song from the group to meet with success.
The lyrics are supposedly:
The sidewalks in the street; The concrete and the clay beneath my feet; Begins to crumble; But love will never die; Because we’ll see the mountains tumble; Before we say goodbye.
But it never seemed to scan properly. It sounded like:
The concrete and the clay beneath my … … … Feet begin to crumble … …
