Helston gutterThe curb stones on the streets of Heltson are made of local  granite,   the gutters are deep and floored with local cobbles.   These gutters can both cope with the not insubstantial rainfall of the local climate,   they can look beautiful too.

    That picture actually looks nice. The gutter compliments the surrounding scenery as does the surrounding scenery compliment the gutter.

    Unfortunately, you will probably never see something like that in the US. About the second or third time someone twisted their ankle in one of those things, the lawsuits would convince the city to get rid of such a gutter system.
