This is the gate of a local park which was built in 1855. :-)

It's always disappointing when they stick modern features onto old buildings. Like those road signs and the bollards.

Yes i know what you mean ferny. Those bollards are new and they look well out of place. They should have put some stone ones in to match the gate better. Maybe that would cost them too much. :-)

Thanks selvin, the park is being refurbished at the moment and there used to be some cannons at the top of the park which were captured in the Crimean war. I'm hoping they might put in some replicas when the work is finished. :-)

This is where the cannons used to stand, at the top of the park overlooking the town. :-)
