MIDDLETON LONG STREET SD 80 NE (east side) 2/9 Staircase and - Exedra in Jubilee Park G.V. II Monumental staircase and exedra. 1906. By Edgar Wood. Sandstone. 21 steps lead up to a semi-circular enclosure, at one time with a central fountain, which has seats and an inscription: "Who works not for his fellows his thoughts grow poor and dwindle and his heart grudges each beat as misers a dole". The surrounding walls have U-shaped cut- outs. The quality of materials, planning, design and craftsmanship are all of the highest standard. The steps lead up to the church and are on the axis of the tower, adding dramatic effect to the view from Long Street to the church on top of the hill.
