Located in the centre of the walled city, it is possible to see all four original gates from this location. Three former town-halls have resided in this position in the years 1625, 1692 and 1823. In 1904 a fire in Austin’s Department store in the Diamond also set the town-hall alight and subsequently destroyed the building – consequently a small garden was made on the site. The present War memorial was built in 1927 by the sculptor Vernon March. The figures represent the Navy and the Army and are overlooked by the winged Angel of Victory representing the Royal Air-force. The cenotaph in the Diamond is now a memorial to all those who died during World War I & II.
