Can You Guess What It Is Yet?
If you’ve been spending any amount of time in Greenwich Park recently you may have noticed these strange little tufts of what looks like broom bristles sticking out of the soil, and either not thought any more of them (like me, ahem) or like Dave, who sent me this picture (taken by the Rose garden), actually asked someone what they were.
Dave asked a guy ‘testing the soil’ and
“As I suspected they are marking out the Olympics event course and he said they have used these instead of fencing it off. As I understand they will then be registering them on GPS before taking them up so they can follow those coordinates when the course is laid. I think if they used fencing people would soon realize what the impact on the park is going to be hence these small almost invisible, until you get on top of them, markers.”
Presumably they’re trying to do this as discreetly as possible and I have to say that I’d seen but not really ‘noticed’ these markers. They’re cropping up all over the park now.
So now you know…
