76/365 Ole Jesse

Jesse Boot has done a great deal for my local area. He (and his family) owned the land now occupied by the University of Nottingham, along with the rest of Highfields Park. His generosity has enabled the UoN to flourish, along with giving us local residents some beautiful parkland and a boating lake to enjoy.

 

His bust (coated lovingly in pigeon poo) stares majestically at passing traffic near Highfields Park entrance on University Boulevard.

 

He's a local hero.
