SD5429 : Obelisk

taken 12 years ago, near to Preston, Lancashire, Great Britain

The 18th Century obelisk originally stood at the other side of the market square but for many years was lost. It was re-assembled on its current site at the south side of the square and was unveiled by the Queen in 1979 to mark the 800th anniversary of the granting of a charter to Preston. The building in the background is Crystal House, a 1960s office block.
