You couldn't have failed to notice that the pavements in LG have been covered over with "crazy paving" - it must have been a hard and labour intensive job over a long period of time. It all looked quite nice when first laid but I've noticed now that in quite a few places the "grouting" in between slabs is begining to fail.
Already a portion of the pavement opposite Verdes Supermarket down town has had to have the grouting replaced (in places) ironically the pavement was not closed to pedestrians during this exercise, who had to carefully step onto each slab and not the cement between the slabs - bit of a Heath Robinson job.
Suppose for ease of work and cost the pavement was laid on to of the existing pavement, which in turn was probably laid on top of a previously laid pavement - is this why the kerb stones are particularly high ? - in the event that they will be ok when another top layer of tarmac is applied to the roads !
No doubt the ongoing job of re grouting the crazy paving will keep some Council workers gainfully employed
The same can be said for the red brick herringbone effect for car parking by the side of the road. A sizeable area of these bricks had to be replaced/relaid on the bend just prior to the village entrance - caused I believe by coaches bringing sightseeing to the top of the village to take snaps. Just an observation !!
