Statues & Street Furniture
Throughout the city can be found a number of statues and street furniture, some old and some new. This page aims to show a sample of these and will be added to as I find and photograph more of them.

Boden's Pleasurence Gates
The Gates in the 2 pictures above once formed the entrance to Bodens Pleasurance, a small garden donated to the town by Mrs Boden of Friargate House in the 18th century in memory of her husband. Today the site is covered by Bold Lane multi-story carpark with the just the gates surviving largely unnoticed by the general public.
