A sad bit of history of people, but it is what it is. I had read about this, or I wouldn't have noticed.

So I took her. However I was unaware that she thought this was a shopping centre like Birmingham. Sorry love no shops here. Just a statue and some metal in the ground.

It's a metal ring set into the pavement and a statue of a bull. Famous enough to appear on bus timetables! If you're having a walk around Brading then have a look at it, but don't expect it to take more than 5 minutes!

Nothing wrong with this. It is free, a large statue of a Bull a reminder of the days of bull baiting sadly. Nothing else to say really. Look for it as you pass through Brading

To tell the truth there isn't very much here. In the centre of Brading is the metal ring where a bull was tethered before dogs were set on it. There is a carving of a large bull but apart from the Ryde bus stop there...More

Well it's a big lump of iron in the ground that they tied a bull to, to be bait by bull dogs to tenderise the meat before the animal was lead down West St to the slaughter house. I found all this out by talking...More
