Across the B5069 near Dragon Boat Chinese takeaway and a Co-operative Food store.
Although Belisha beacons had marked pedestrian crossings in the UK from 1934, it was not until 1951 that the now familiar black and white stripes stretching across the width of the road were officially introduced. Previously, there were only metal studs across the road surface.
