Pigeon finial on a telephone box
It is believed Cheltenham’s spa water was discovered in 1716 when pigeons were seen pecking around a spring. As a result a pigeon has been the symbol of Cheltenham ever since. Pigeons also appear in Cheltenham's Coat of Arms and as iron finials on top of the town’s fingerpost signs. This one is on top of a telephone box.
