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.
