We turned a corner and there it was. A pleasant square with fountains and an ideal location to chill in the city centre. It's next to the town hall and round about are several restaurants, all busy.

After a busy morning shopping on the Moor, this is a lovely place to sit and watch the the world go by. We had sandwiches from the Greggs there and fed the birds whilst chuckling at the children who were playing in the water.

A place to chill out and relax and play games or eat a picnic in a reasonably open people friendly zone. Good for children. Useful in good weather for events and meetings and seeing friends. Very comfortable to spend time here. There is a country...More
