I'm often in the shopping centre. Didn't even know that an obelisk was here. Long before I loved in the area. Interesting to find out about it though

Nothing to be seen of what seems to be an interestingingly designed obelisk judging by Dusty's photo. Best thing about Yate shopping centre was the lunch in M&S.

difficult to get a good GPS fix because of the canyon effect of the shopping mall. By best estimate is the obelisk used to be above Poundland

The site of the trig is in a modernised 1960s shopping centre in the centre of Yate. The town expanded greatly in the 1960s as overspill for Bristol. The pedestrianised shopping centre was part of the development of the shiny New Town. A dramatic spire-shaped sculpture was once mounted high above the centre. This sculpture existed until the early 1990s when it was removed during the revamping of the centre.
