JOHNSON FOUNTAIN

Where’s it going to go?

The general consensus seems to be strongly in favour of somewhere in the town centre. After all, that’s where it was designed for – originally in the Market Place, then revised to Hall Place. As well as providing pure drinking water at a time when it was a luxury for many people in the town, it strengthened the distinctive character of Hall Place by giving it a striking central focus. That is, until it was removed to Ayscoughfee Gardens in 1954 to make way for a traffic scheme. See the latest newsletter to read more...
