What is it?

The first time I came to Lewis I was surprised to see these strange concrete structures at some of the road junctions outside of town. Often with not a single dwelling near them I surmised perhaps they were some sort of war-time left over. The nearest things they resembled in my experience were the gun emplacements on the coast around Merseyside.

Upon enquiring from GB as to what they were I discovered they were bus shelters. A very clever idea, by being divided into quarters they offer shelter which ever way the wind is coming from. They would actually be quite effective on Merseyside as well - not much scope for vandalism unless you’ve got a pneumatic drill up your sleeve.
