Richmond Park, by Kingston Gate - 2002
The Royal Parks were keen to restore the
fountains and horse troughs in Richmond Park. These
facilities had been well used by people, horses and dogs.
The first fountain
selected for restoration was the one by Kingston Gate and, in
addition to general refurbishment the fountain needed a
replacement lid. The fountain was dismantled so that the
material used to dowel the cup to the bowl could be checked and
the overflow drainage reinstated. The urn was then found
to be badly cracked and needed to be replaced.
The drinking fountain
was successfully installed with a new paved surround in February
