3/39 The fountain opposite No 4

II

Drinking fountain. 1866 at the expense of Miss Frances and Miss Maria Stanhope. The Viking-style cross decorated with flowing and intertwined motifs sits on a base of intertwined beaked serpents. The whole sits on a 4-step podium which is cut away to house similarly ornamented water trough. The shaft of the cross has a partly eroded inscribed panel:

WHOSOEVER / DRINKETH OF THIS WATER / SHALL THIRST AGAIN / BUT WHOSOEVER DRINKETH / OF THE WATER THAT I SHALL / GIVE HIM SHALL NEVER / THIRST BUT THE WATER / THAT I SHALL GIVE HIM / (SHALL BE IN HIM A WELL / OF WATER SPRINGING UP / INTO EVERLASTING LIFE)"
