REDDITCH B CHURCH GREEN
SP 0467 NW
12/28 Fountain about 80 yards
north of the Church of
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).
