WELTON THE GREEN
9/77 The Fountain and Basin
Fountain. Dated in inscription 187- (last digit illegible). Ashlar.
Perpendicular style. Octagonal pier with string course and floral panels to
top, cornice ornamented with diaper work and brattishing and with grotesque
figures to each corner, (heads all missing). Frieze of shields beneath an
ogee cap with poppyhead finial. Beneath the string is an inscription in
a Gothic script "In memory of Anne Popple ad 1874. I will give (a) vow
God, that if (you have) a thirst, of the fountain of the water of life,
(drink) freely." Adjoining the fountain is a hollowed out stone, forming
part of the base: a spout, now missing, led water into the basin.
