The Obelisk, off The Walk, Birdwell, from the south-east
It is difficult to get a clear view as the obelisk is surrounded by buildings. Built in 1775, for the second Earl of Strafford, to mark the distance of exactly 3 Miles to Wentworth Castle, Stainborough. Made of sandstone and Grade 2 listed. The obelisk was struck by lightning on 6 June 1906. The poster advertises the programme at the Academy Theatre.
