Beatles Crosswalk Gains Historic Protection

The crosswalk pictured on the cover of the Beatles' album Abbey Road has been designated a historic place in London.

The famous crosswalk will receive protection from the government as one of its historic places.

"The heritage minister John Penrose took the unusual decision to protect the crossing, which provided the cover shot for Abbey Road album, following advice from English Heritage.

Although the listing is the first of its kind, the Abbey Road studios where the 1969 album was recorded, won similar recognition this February."
