15.3.66 (formerly listed as water
fountain with carved boat)


Drinking fountain. 1907, using probably C18 statue. Gritstone plinth,
fossiliferous limestone statue. The plinth is approximately 2 metres long
and 1 metre wide, the plinth and statue approximately 2 metres high; the
narrower side facing towards the street having a central recessed panel with
the inscription: "A Gift to Ripley / from / The Hon Alicia Margaret / Dame
Ingilby / 1907". The inscription is flanked by taps and cuphooks. The
statue is of a boar. Dame Alicia was the wife of Sir Henry Day Ingilby
(d1911); her gift was timely as a few years later the 3 inns in the village
were closed by Sir Henry's brother, William.
