"The Abbey Road zebra crossing in London, made famous by The Beatles on the cover of their 1969 album of the same name, has been given listed status by Minister for Tourism and Heritage John Penrose.

The crossing, which has long been a site of pilgrimage for
Beatles fans, has been given a Grade II
listing. The status means it's officially recognised as a nationally
important monument and has increased protection. It is the first time
such an honour has been given to a zebra crossing.
"

What do you guys think about this? Do you agree that Abbey Road is an important British monument as, say, Big Ben? Or do you think this honour has been long overdue?

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

I'm just curious how you protect it. They've never had to repave that area?
