Church Square, Market Harborough
England

St. Dionysius' Church, The Old Grammar School, and the Council Offices, in Market Harborough town centre, Leicestershire, England.

The Church was originally built in 1300, though the majority of the current structure dates from a 1470 remodelling. The church has no graveyard as burials were carried out at St. Mary's of Arden Church in Great Bowden, and then later at the town cemetery when it opened in 1877.

The Old Grammar School was built by Robert Smyth in 1614, a native of the town who rose to become the Comptroller of the Lord Mayor's Court of the City of London. It was built on stilts to allow the butter market to be held underneath. The school remained in the building until 1892, when new premises were built on Coventry Road.

The Red Brick building that houses the Council Offices, Museum, and Library, was previously home to Symington's Corset Factory. The building is the only remaining part of the factory, which closed in 1957.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
