Friday Fountain Challenge: June

One of the more unusual fountains I have come across is in the Water Gardens of Westonbury Mill in Herefordshire. I am claiming the water tower as a fountain because it works on the same basic principle. Water is drawn up to the top and then flows down – in this case forced out – through various openings.

There are several follies in this garden and well worth a visit if you are in the area.

If you’d like to join in with the fountain challenge then please pop over to Polianthus for the rules

This month she is looking for unusual details onΒ fountains/unusual fountains.Β I’m sure she would love to see you.

      Glad you accept it as a fountain (though the header photo has a different ‘proper’ fountain so I covered all bases πŸ˜€

    I like the hound and the dragon is sweet, not to keen on the geezer though, he looks a bit creepy to me. This is really different Jude πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      I wonder if the geezer is modelled on the owner? He certainly liked his follies πŸ™‚

  5. Arkenaten says:

    These are lovely.

  6. Great shots, Jude. Fountain or not, it’s really amazing. πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      Water does puther out, I just didn’t capture it doing that very well πŸ™‚
