Staircase and
- Exedra in
Jubilee Park
G.V.
II
Monumental staircase and exedra. 1906. By Edgar Wood.
Sandstone. 21 steps lead up to a semi-circular enclosure, at
one time with a central fountain, which has seats and an
inscription: "Who works not for his fellows his thoughts
grow poor and dwindle and his heart grudges each beat as
misers a dole". The surrounding walls have U-shaped cut-
outs. The quality of materials, planning, design and
craftsmanship are all of the highest standard. The steps
lead up to the church and are on the axis of the tower,
adding dramatic effect to the view from Long Street to the
church on top of the hill.
