“Great market square”

The American Fountain
Reviewed November 16, 2017

It is a lovely monument but also the square makes an excellent setting for the market, which always has a good variety of temptations.

On first acquaintance, this commemorative looks bizarre until you realise that is pure Victoriana with great piece of public art.many functions including horse troughs, clock dials, even an owl. So spend a little time exploring this

We managed to photograph this American fountain with ease as there were no stalls or tourists surrounding it.It is situated on a busy road so getting a clear opportunity to take a photo of it is quite tricky.Apparently it was given to our country by a wealthy American......it is a beautiful piece of work...visited 8th Oct 2017.

Here again, This is something you observe on your stroll through the town. It is nicely constructed and has historical value. Its at the center of cross roads so a great landmark and meeting point.

An elaborate monument marking British and American ties at the end of the walking mall. There were neat carvings and thoughtful quotes from the Bard.
