Marks on St.Helens Central ststion surrounds

Recommended Posts

Just been into Central station.Noticed theyve tldied up an old derelict area at entrance.

I believe it's  poss extra car parking.

What I had noticed were 3 markings on the inside of the old wall.

The 3 markings are 3 parking spaces marked out on the wall.There is a GREEN RECTANGLE  on each.Over each is painted in white paint, roughly! NHS. These are old markings.

I would have put on photographs but didn't have my camera.I think it would have caught out quite a few!

Ever since I was a lad I had never noticed these.

Can anyone enlighten?.

It's good to see they've cleared that area. it was becoming a meeting point for the druggies getting their prescriptions form the walk in centre and taking it round there to share out. The station staff have had a nightmare with them.

spot on, robbob (his tutor?) must have taught him good.Maybe the spots were there when it was fyffes.Obviously for those who slipped on the odd  banana skin?
