Derelict fountain takes a further knock

Sad to see the fountain in Laura Place has been damaged with stonework on the basin broken away. Was it the weather or a vehicle passing too close?

I know talks are continuing between B&NES and the City of Bath College in the hope that students – who are training to be stone masons – might be involved in doing some structural renovation.

It would be nice to see it working again instead of lying derelict and full of weeds and rain-water.

Maybe the alternative it to plant it up as a proper flower bed –  if they cannot get the water going again.
