... the size of the safety cobbles, but are thinner because they don't have to carry the load. They are mostly quite carefully laid, so make walking on the pavements reasonably comfortable. Areas around manholes (another story which Mandi will tell in pictures) are often filled with cobbles of the revolution, and have often subsided, or are absent making for interesting walking.
