Bournemouth: Richmond Hill emerges into The Square
Bournemouth: Richmond Hill emerges into The Square
Standing in The Square, we look north at the emergence of Richmond Hill, which descends quite steeply to meet us. The Square was a roundabout prior to pedestrianisation in 1992, with the Hill a busy road for motorists.

To the left, we see the Bournemouth branch of New Look, which used to be Burton menswear store until about 10 years ago. We are reminded of this by the foundation stone which was laid by one of the Burton family; only now as I upload this picture do I realise that the couple walking on our left are obscuring this detail not to worry, a close-up will be found here: SZ0891 : Bournemouth: foundation stone of former Burton store.

The rounded art-deco end of Bristol & West House is visible up Richmond Hill, beyond the NatWest bank see SZ0891 : Bournemouth: Bristol & West House from below and SZ0891 : Bournemouth: Bristol & West House from above.

In the foreground we see the SZ0891 : Bournemouth: artful paving in The Square.
