Drinking fountain with bust commemorates Councillor William Cook.
The design of this memorial drinking fountain is derived from wayside shrines, a Catholic tradition whereby the faithful erected shrines through the countryside of Europe. In this secularised form, the spring of water replaces the holy image. The drinking spout is located below a domed canopy, above which is the marble bust of the councillor.
