    Designed by Richard Huws & completed in 1966. It was good to see it going again in time for Capital of Culture Year after so many years of inactivity. It's hard to imagine that this work that most would regard as "modern" architecture is now heading for its own half-century. Just a shame that its "back street" location means that many visitors miss it and even many local people do not know of it.

    It is in a funny location. It's great when you go off route in a city and find gems like that. Water features somehow add a lot of character to a town centre.

    Yes... it was neat to just sit and watch it work... always different sequences.

    That was in the 60's - nice to see that it's back and working again - sort of amazing it didn't get remodeled with the rest of town...
