What other local authorities do with old fountains

Posted by davidburbage on October 25, 2010

Here in Tynemouth, they dig out a long-lost (and clearly popular) fountain only to … let it be covered up again. Apparently the “maintenance costs” are too high.

Curiously, that is what I was told when I asked why the beautiful Lutyens fountain in Windsor contained three flower beds.

Make it flow! I said. 

So we did, and now we have this very pleasant and enjoyable feature of Windsor doing what Lutyens wanted it to do.
