[Talk-GB] What's the best way of mapping/tagging...

Indeed you can't drive through the wall, the signs take you through the
shopping precinct.

Re the blue area on my map - cobble stone ramps get you on it, much like the
foreground but steaper. As mentioned earlier no signs prohibiting motor
vehicles, until just before the wall anyway.

Living street sounds reasonable, although the sidewalks imply otherwise.

As with nearly all the lcns in nottingham, no ref apart of the eventual
desinations (the sea of blue, duplicated, signs and half arsed cycle lanes
along the routes gives the lcns route away).

First off, going on the streetview, I wouldn't say the road with reddish
colouring & 'cobblestones' (shown white on your sketch) is pedestrian/cycle
exclusive. It appears that vehicles, such as deliveries, are allowed. I
think there would be bollards if not.

Does the signpost give any clues?

Bit unsure about the blue bits. It seems there's no bollards so in theory
could a vehicle be allowed to cross it, albeit very slowly.  What type of
kerbs do these blue areas have.

Also if there's no a gap in the wall, how do you cycle through it?

Does the LCN have a number? If so tag it, preferably in a relation.

General mapping tip: You can go as detailed as you like - if it's physical,
you can map it (given time & patience).
Personally I don't tag pavements that are not separated from the road by
grass verge etc.
