Cobbles to You

A while back we were discussing how cobbles or setts had been pointed up with sand and cement in many places in town, especially around the William Brown Street area and how much of a bad job had been made of them. Here is a pic I took a couple of nights back showing how some have been re-laid and in filled with a Tar based bitumastic sealant. A bit messy they way some of the Tar has been allowed to spill on the face of the stone , but I imagine it will wear off shortly... What do you reckon on it .

I'll only like if the tar bubbles up in the summer and I can sit there popping it...... Razz
I like it really  Very Happy

It does look like some improvement,but I still think they should be "butt jointed",and bedded in,but what do I know!! Confused  
                                    I'll have to get out and take some pic's,of any remaining streets where they are still visible! There were a few,around Low Hill,and at least one,off Holt rd.but does anyone know of any others?

Yes. This is Glynn Street off Picton Road. There are a few more near by with the cobbles on show.

Re: Cobbles to You

Here is a shot I took today of a Street set out in original Setts and it looks very similar in design to the new laid one shown in my shot at the start of this thread.
