Former fountain, now planter. c.1860 for Lady Waterford, commemorating the
death of her husband in 1859. Sandstone ashlar basin, granite base to column,
polished pink granite column; sandstone statue.
Large quatrefoil-shaped basin with cable-moulded edge. 4 lions-head spouts
at the corners drain into semicircular overflow basins. In the centre a tall
Corinthian column on an octagonal base with alternate sides projecting; from
them project stone water spouts. The sides between have worn inscriptions
including the legend "with joy shall ye drink out of the well of salvation.
Drink ye abundantly O beloved". The column is octagonal below and round above
with shields and cable moulding at the intersection. On top an almost lifesize
angel holding a shield with the Waterford arms.
The column was renewed following storm damage in 1868.
