The nursery rhyme Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star was written in Colchester in 1806 by Jane Taylor. Lest any visitor be unaware of this, a statue of Jane and her sister Ann was recently erected in the High Street.

The statue depicts Jane (or maybe Ann, we've no way of knowing) pointing into the sky. I guess we're supposed to think she's pointing at a star — but are we?

I followed the line of her arm and no, she isn't pointing at a star.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Streetlight?

Get some glasses, Jane!
