Shadow Shot Sunday:
Pippin Street Roundabout
On our way back from Southport last week our coach was diverted along the B5242 from Scarisbrick to Burscough.
While stuck in traffic at the Pippin Street Roundabout I took this photograph through the window.
I didn't know what this was but after a lot of googling (most of it futile) I eventually discovered Tollgate Road leads from the roundabout to the Burscough Industrial Estate. The roundabout features an eyecatching design linked to the estate's history as a former military airfield. The main element of the design is the use of wing-shaped markers, which have been designed as a reference to the Fairey Firefly fighter plane flown from the site in World War II.
There is another view of the roundabout on Geograph.
