Parlington Hall :: Stereo photos :: Fountains

Not only the best picture of the fountain, discovered to date, but the curious smaller fountain in the distance is revealed, in context to the larger fountain. the enlarged and better picture of the small fountain is from the view shown in S2. Water possibly came from the top of the inverted fish and cascaded into the shell shaped bowl on the house side of the piece.

Small Fountain

The bowl can be identified on the right of the picture above, small pieces of this shell were found earlier this year [2008] and are made of a cement based composite, so it must be victorian.

Another feature of the garden that was revealed as a result of header picture, are the steps which are seen beyond the main fountain. The slope still exists to this day, but is largely obscured by a cherry plantation. There is no sign of any paving and it looks as if the steps were formed in the grass, despite some excavations in recent years there is no evidence of any stonework being used to create the steps.
