Statue of John Howard (1726 - 1790) that was erected in 1890. The base is made from the base of an ornamental water fountain that stood nearby before it was replaced by the present (and inferior) one on the corner of St Paul's churchyard. See the pin marker on the corner of the churchyard for a photo of that water fountain. The attached photo was taken on the 10th December 2013.

Panacea Society. Probably Bedford's best kept secret. Last member has now died and the museum is open every Thursday free to enter and absolutely fascinating. Entrance in Newnham Road opposite the side gate to The Higgins.

This water fountain on the corner of St Paul's churchyard replaced a far more elaborate one that stood nearby. The inscription reads, "This fountain is erected by the Municipal Council of Bedford in place of one presented to the Borough in 1870 by Thomas Westley Turnley.
