“In its 2000 recorded years ‘The Borough has served Legions, Conquerors and Lords’ Protector, and provided employment for brewers, highwaymen, tarts and executioners. It is the one bit of the city where a returning Roman, looking down, might say  ‘Et Tu Brute’ to a pavement cobble remembered from his own time, and it has the best free view in town” – Jon Harris
