It's rather peculiar Rabbie, it was the largest drinking fountain I saw as child. I visited many local and City parks back then as I was a confirmed wanderer, I remember drinking from a red granite fountain, probably from Archbishop's Park
, although I couldn't swear to it. None came near St John's fountain neither in size nor substance. It had two or three step up to it, all in beautifully cut, grey with black speckled polished granite.
Richard Wale went expressly to take a photograph of it for me, thats how I found out it had mysteriously disappeared!
Wish I had named the thread differently, Mystery in Waterloo or Disappearing Act in Swing Gardens, I'm afraid that my title might not strike a cord with those who may remember it or know what fate it suffered.
