Fountain in Great Pulteney Street in Bath

The fountain in Great Pulteney Street/Laura Place in Bath was originally going to be a grand column rather like Nelson’s Column. As construction of the column started, the residents realised that the addition would tower over the area so it was changed and the (half built) column was pulled down and the much smaller fountain added instead.
The centrepiece of the original Laura place fountain was damaged beyond repair during freshers’ week in 1969 and replaced with a modern design in 1970.
