Garden of Rest,  North Street.
Undated. Image shows the Garden of Rest in North Street. A blue plaque commemorates the old court house which stood on the site of the gardens.The blue plaque in the background, right, reads as follows: "This arch was originally over a passageway between two houses at West End (now Westgate) near the present library. Local tradition says that they were probably built by the descendants of Huguenot (Protestant) refugees from France. The French inscription stone reads 'Love thy neighbour as yourself, said the Evangelist' and was laid on the 19th January 1827".
