Grassing over Fort Hill


Fort Hill, Margate is in the local news regarding the proposal to grass over the northbound carriageway.
This picture taken in 1875 is of a minstrel troupe playing on the grass outside the Brittania pub. It does appear that part of the grass is now the present southbound carriageway and the pavement is the central reservation.

I'm not convinced that the effort is worth the results. I am still open to some actual facts but it seems rather "a nice idea someone had last thing Friday" and devoid of things like a good reason or an actual study.
