Clearly, it’s the obelisk

The council – it must have been the council – has just felled a considerable number of trees and removed vegetation at the back of Camberley Park.  (That’s the park behind the library).  For the first time in years it’s possible to see the obelisk clearly from ‘ground level’.  It looks surprisingly close; laboriously climbing the knoll to reach it gives a false impression of distance.

 

We should point out that the footpath up to the obelisk is closed at the moment because of the clearing work.

  1. Why was the obelisk built, was it built for a particular reason or is it just a folly? When was it built and by whom?
