Market Square paving.

The bricks around one of the covers (painted yellow :( )outside boots are starting to collapse.

and

Not quite market square but they have managed to put all the bricks back after digging up outside the old M&S, so that goes to show that contactors never need to put tarmac down after 'repairs'.
If the grid/cover is yellow then it's probably a fire hydrant.

Haven't seen the area you are referring to, however yellow is indeed used to indicate "Fire Hydrants". There should be a sign near by, 'probably attached to an adjacent building' indicating how far the Hydrant is, in metric, away from this sign.

And the pipe size.

Now your just getting pernickety. My old training school mates would be appalled, I missed that off the list. Used to have recordings of the "essential lists" that I played on a casset on my way into training school. It was 20 yrs ago and I do have a good excuse! ;)

There's still a few imperial ones about, inches for pipe diameter and feet for distance.

They were digging up the Market Square new-look paving stones today. All cordoned off.
Rumour has it that they were unable to complete some work at the corner of the Shire Hall because of the scaffolding that was there at the time.

As with any rumour, there may, or may not, be some or any truth in it.

Who knows...

No rumour, it's true.
