Discovering Old Huddersfield

Extract from Discovering Old Huddersfield (1993-2002) by Gordon & Enid Minter:

Whilst driving along the ring-road look out for a grassy bank on the left opposite to Zetland Street. The bank itself is not of any great interest except that it is the approximate location of a tiny public park called St. Paul's Garden which was once suggested as a suitable site for Sir John William Ramsden's Jubilee Fountain. The garden, which survived into the late 1960s, is now covered by part of the University complex.
