The Square, Broughton-in-Furness
The Square, Broughton-in-Furness
Before the mid-18C, Broughton-in-Furness was a loose group of buildings strung out along the ancient coastal route, but after seeing in 1760 the new squares then being constructed in London, Gilpin Sawrey, the Lord of the Manor, made his own version. The square is lined by trees and surrounded by 18C buildings in terraces. The Obelisk of 1810 was erected for the Jubilee of George III. There are stone slabs for the display of fish etc in the market (no longer used).
