In 1844 H.W. Pitts and E.G. Vernon prepared a plan for King's Square. The plan included: the enclosure of the Square with posts and chains; walkthroughs that ran from the corners terminating at the centre and forming an octagon figure; a central fountain; grass, and some of the choicest trees of the forests. The desire was to render "the whole Square a scene of rural grandeur" and "forest garden".
