The fountain has been built and installed and was switched on on Thursday, 1st March (ten months to the day after they started with the project) for a tryout, and to be photographed in the bright early spring sunshine. Beautiful, it is, and such a nice present to us from the local council. Lovely also to hear the splash of water on the stone base.
The fountain replaces the original fountain from 1905, which as removed in the 1930's as it had not been properly maintained.
The fountain will be officially opened at 14.00 on 24th March.
View from south-west to north-east.
