Where the 4-zone and 6-zone kiss, and formerly where the A5 (now A5183) and A6 (now A1081) cannoned off each other, Peahen Crossroads is in the centre of St Albans. There were diagonal pedestrian crossings, allowing you to either stay in zone 5, or avoid it as you head from zone-4 to zone-6 - however, in recent years these have either been removed or allowed to fade away to nothing.
