New pump for Laura Place​ fountain​

It’s official. The reason why the fountain in Laura Place is not operating. It needs a new pump.

Filled but not functioning?

I bumped into the contractors filling the bowl as part of the fountain’s recommissioning after its winter isolation. Come time to flick the switch and nothing happened.

It needs a new pump. As far as Bath Newseum is concerned it needs a kind sponsor to spend some money on what is a slowly disintegrating poor excuse of a spectacle to help celebrate this city of waters.

I will try and let you know when the fountain is working again. In the meantime, a reminder of what it looks like in action!
