The Little-Known Patterns on British Streets

I thought about saying “secret patterns” or “mysterious patterns” in the title, but that’d be a lie: they’re just mostly unknown! So let’s talk about tactile paving, about design, about accessibility, and about those bumpy bits that you stand on when you’re crossing a British street. // Thanks to Richard Holmes and the team from the RNIB!

The design manual is called Guidance on the Use of Tactile Paving Surfaces (Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions, 1998) [PDF]: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/289245/tactile-paving-surfaces.pdf
