Drinking Fountain


Type Fountain

     Originally the fountain consisted of a pillar tower and spire with weathervane. It was dismantled in 1980 because of roadworks, and was reassembled in 1992 minus the central tower section and the weathervane. Today the spire section stands directly on the square-sectioned base and is topped by a ball finial.
