REDDITCH B CHURCH GREEN SP 0467 NW Town Centre 12/28 Fountain about 80 yards north of the Church of St Stephen

GV II

Fountain. 1883. Painted cast iron. Octagonal shallow plinth. Circular moulded stem with foliated relief work decorating the narrower central section. Upon this is situated an octagonal pier with gadrooned base and bull-rush relief work. It supports four large cranes that face outwards from it and have large leaves entwined around their feet. Above the pier the fountain has a vase-like profile opening out into a shallow dish-like shape upon which stands the figure of a woman (about three feet high) surrounded by bull-rushes and pouring water from a vase. The fountain is about 12 feet high in total. This large fountain with its unusual and naturalistic detail forms a focal point at the north end of Church Green, and is of particular importance when approaching the town centre from Prospect Hill. (BoE, p 248).
