Abbey Road Crossing Protected

One of the most popular tourist trod pieces of pavement in the world has finally been granted English Heritage status.  The famed zebra crosswalk near Abbey Road Studios in London the Beatles strode across on an August day to be photographed for the cover of the 1969 album bearing the studio name is an English Heritage Grade II site.  The designation, which provides official recognition of a location, building or monument as a site of important national interest (ya think!), is now protected from alteration.  Never in much of a hurry to get around to these things, UK officials gave similar status to the studio only earlier this year.
