Ramsdesn Square Roundabout is a large roundabout in Barrow-in-Furness, with the centre island being used for planting around a central statue. Around the edges of the roundabout are impressive buildings with the roundabout being edged with mature trees between the circulatory carriageway and footways.

The square is named after Sir James Ramsden, the industrialist and civil engineer co-founded the Furness Railway Company in 1846 and served as managing director between 1866 and 1895. Ramsden was knighted in 1872 and a statue was unveiled that same year in Ramsden Square which was first laid out in the 1840s to act as a focal point of his masterplan for the new town[1].
