The pedestrian walkway on the southern side of the square (outside Deichmann) is closed this week as the fountain is connected to the potable water main and the overflow pipework to the foul sewer.

Access to all shops and roads around the square remain open, but pedestrians will need to walk around the square to gain access between The Martlets and the The Broadway. This walkway will re-open next week in time for the Easter holidays.
