WC2, Princes Circus
We'd give odds that most Londoners have never heard of Princes Circus but its there on the map, at the junction of Shaftsbury Avenue, St Giles High Street and High Holborn. When we first spotted this sturdy fountain it was looking rather sorry for itself, cowering on the south-east corner of Shaftsbury Avenue and New Oxford Street, a junction which was being refurbished. When we went back to photograph it, it had vanished, only to be rediscovered some weeks later in its new home where it is fenced in, perhaps to stop it running off again?
