We’ve not been in the Square for a day or two. But when we were last there, we saw this object covered with a rather tatty plastic ‘tarpaulin’. There used to be a small obelisk in Obelisk Way, outside Boots, but it was removed years ago, so our first – not altogether serious – thought was that a larger one was being brought in as a replacement. But then we guessed (hoped?) that perhaps the refurbishment of the mall had been restarted after a long Christmas break, and that the cover was over a hydraulic platform of some sort. We’ll have to go and look soonest.
