The image below is of the Town Hall in the Market Square that now holds the Tourist Information Centre that gives information on local attractions.

The second image is of the Square in Broughton in Furness with the Obelisk having been erected in 1810 for the Jubilee of King George III. By the Obelisk are Slabs where Fish caught on the River Duddon were sold.

There are also Old Stocks next to the Obelisk, used for Punishment and Public Humiliation up to the 1870s. These have been retained as a Tourist Attraction, a good photo set.

The Black Cock Inn is close to the Market Square, offering good food, accommodation and a wide selection of ales and spirits.
