A pinch of Salt


Lister Park is also 'home' to a few influential men. The ornate monument at the northern end of the park (shown here from the back) holds a statue of Sir Titus Salt. See here for an earlier photo I took of the statue itself. The castellated gatehouse behind commemorates a visit of the then Prince and Princess of Wales, Edward and Alexandra, in 1883.

  1. The second vocabulary word I learned today within 5 minutes of blogging--castellated-what a great word!

  3. This is a beautiful monument. Nice, crisp image. Your steadiness puts me to shame.
