Lincoln Square
Lincoln Square

This small public square was created in 1986, when the area near the town hall was redeveloped. At that time, the council moved the Grade II listed LinkExternal link statue of Abraham Lincoln from Platt Fields Park to its present site within the square.

In front of the statue was a fountain, built to commemorate the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981. Like the marriage itself, the fountain didn't last. It was filled in, converted to a raised flower bed and rededicated to the memory of Diana after her death in 1997.

In the background is Centurion House SJ8398 : Centurion House, Deansgate, Manchester which fronts Deansgate.
