Public drinking fountain, c.1895. Ashlar limestone, in the form of a wall with offsetting ends rising to gabled copings, the central section of which rises a further course and similarly coped but adorned with a triangular gablet. At the centre a 2-centred chamfered arched recess containing the water source piped through from the back, running into a cantilevered semi-circular bowl finely decorated with fin-de-si_cle leaves, and an inscription around the rim reading INòREMEMBRANCEò MAE---R WILLIAMSòBRYNGWYN. A panel over the arch is ambiguously inscribed WHOSOEVER DRINKETH:OF:THIS: / WATER:SHALL:THIRST:AGAIN: / BUT:WHOSOEVER:DRINKETH:THE: / WATER:THAT:I:SHALL:GIVE:HIM / SHALL:NEVER:THIRST.
Included as a handsome public monument, of group value with the lych-gate and Christ Church parish church.
