Well, shank's pony won't do you any good either, actually. Have you tried to walk down marshallsea road recently? At the borough high street end, you've got joe's kitchen taking over more than half the pathway with their (7am to 9pm) tables, chairs, really annoying sticky outy metal barrier things and then their sticky outy double chalk board on the other half of the pavement. Try to cross the road to get space to walk and you then hit the problem of that ex government building spot. The builders of that Valentine place have stolen half the pavement there as well! With wood fencing. Any space that might have been free, is taken up by the now annoying metal bike parking things.
So, no room for shank's ponying away from the car jams.
It's very annoying.

Bloggie years ago within the department of Highways at the Council there used to be a very strict rule about shops extending their business onto the pavement, three or four feet as I recall.i think a blind eye was turned if the pavement was wide enough to allow pedestrians to pass unhindered. And by the sound of what you've described not n this case!
