FORD FORD VILLAGE NT 9437 17/112 The Waterford Fountain GV II

Former fountain, now planter. c.1860 for Lady Waterford, commemorating the death of her husband in 1859. Sandstone ashlar basin, granite base to column, polished pink granite column; sandstone statue.

Large quatrefoil-shaped basin with cable-moulded edge. 4 lions-head spouts at the corners drain into semicircular overflow basins. In the centre a tall Corinthian column on an octagonal base with alternate sides projecting; from them project stone water spouts. The sides between have worn inscriptions including the legend "with joy shall ye drink out of the well of salvation. Drink ye abundantly O beloved". The column is octagonal below and round above with shields and cable moulding at the intersection. On top an almost lifesize angel holding a shield with the Waterford arms.

The column was renewed following storm damage in 1868.
