Heritage in our time-A Suggestion.(46).

Heritage Walk-Southampton.

Southampton has fine City Centre parks- an opportunity to attract viewers from the City & visitors, too. Important Heritage features too. This suggestion is offered to invite comments & possible action.  The relocation of the Jonas Nicholls’ Fountain is proposed because of the lack of care for this listed feature & its use as a waste dump for Council bins & others’ waste.  Its history is part of Southampton’s. Originally, at ‘Six Dials,’ then ‘Kingsland Market’, currently Jonas Nichols’ Square in St.Marys.The proposed ‘R.J.Mitchell’ feature is suggested as an important contribution to our City’s historyA  metal sculpture it should include possibly two representations of Supermarine workers either side of ‘R.J.M’.
