This unusual sculpture 'Fibres' by Ian Randall lies between Forster Square Railway Station and the town centre. The two pillars are constructed from old railway lines radiating out into the surrounding paved area. The sculpture is popular with young children who run at the pillars to see how far they can climb up!
The building in the background is the Midland Hotel. The original railway station was located some 300 yards closer to the town centre, next to this hotel.
