This stone compass is sited near the city walls, visitors arriving by train will almost certainly pass it on their way into the city. It probably served as a useful orientation mark before GPS was widely available!
The quote is from Ezekiel - "Thou wilt say unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live."—Ezekiel 37:9. Given the date of 1946 it is presumably a second world war memorial


  1. Nice compass, though I am not sure how many people woth have found knowing where North lies.

  2. I always like to know which direction I am heading - harder to get lost then even in a large city like London!
