Here we have a plaque commemorating a lost fountain. It was only removed in 1964 so we are surprised that we can find so little information about it. It was a splendid Gothic extravaganza so mostly we want to know why it was removed and where it went. Also, what was inscribed on it? Was it a memorial to anyone or anything? Few fountains erected at this time were there simply to provide refreshment.
