Obstructing the highway – the A boards of Canterbury

If you walk the 600 yds. along Canterbury High Street from the Westgate Tower to the Clock Tower, apart from having to slalom around various bollards, waste paper bins, and costermongers' trolleys; whilst deftly swerving the charity muggers and buskers; leaping for safety from ankle-breaking pushchairs, electric buggies and skate boards and flattening yourself against the wall to escape being trampled by a phalanx of headphone-wearing, clipboard-wielding foreign students and not twisting your knees on the uneven cobbles.... then you can run the gauntlet of the Canterbury A boards.

There is hardly any room for pedestrians in the street now.

Have I missed any?
