Heritage in the city

Buildings and public art, such as clocks, memorials, statues and fountains, are part of the heritage of our city. They give us a real sense of how the city has grown as well as commemorating our past, present and future.

Adding to our public spaces these features provide us with an environment that is both enjoyable and thought-provoking.
