More Info →The Observatory in The Square

The observatory was erected in the south-west quadrant of The Square in 1906. It was demolished in 1938 after repeated bouts of vandalism and the increase in light pollution in The Square lessened its usefullness. The Lakelet constructed 1909, can be seen to the left of the observatory.
