Abbey Road crossing made famous by The Beatles gets a fresh lick of paint 

As the Fab Four might have sung… Here comes the sun, it feels like years since it’s been clear. 

Road workers took advantage of empty streets on a beautifully sunny day in the coronavirus lockdown to give the iconic Abbey Road zebra crossing a fresh lick of paint. 

They repainted the white stripes which had become faded thanks to the legions of Beatles fans who walk across them every year and recreate the cover of 1969 album Abbey Road – which includes Here Comes The Sun.

The crossing is located just outside Abbey Road Studios in north London where The Beatles recorded most of their albums. 

On August 8, 1969, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and George Harrison, walked on the crossing until photographer Iain Macmillan got his famous shot.
