2002 by Artscope. The artwork on the gable end of the building facing the square takes elements of local history from the Roman period to the present. There are also three decorative steel infill panels in the square. A reset section of Hadrian's Wall, which was archaeologically excavated before the square was created is on display. The position of the cippi pits is marked by steel markers in the pavement.
