Inscription

{On a plaque fixed to the rim of the fountain:}
In October 1976 this fountain was presented by Adrianne Uziell-Hamilton in memory of her father Marcus Grantham, a member of Middle Temple who died on 26th May 1975.

{On another plaque fixed to the rim of the fountain:}
"Brilliantly the Temple Fountain sparkled in the sun, and laughingly its liquid music played and merrily the idle drops of water danced and danced, and peeping out in sport among the trees, plunged lightly down to hide themselves" Martin Chuzzlewit, Charles Dickens
