The Fountain Leicester Town Hall Square

The fountain, together with the layout of Town Hall Square, was designed by Francis Hames, the architect of the Town Hall, and the fountain was unveiled by Sir Israel Hart on 24 September 1879. It is constructed of bronze-painted cast iron, Shap granite and Ross of Mull granite. The fountain is listed, grade 2, and the listing description states: "Cast iron on stone base. Four large winged lions surrounding Ionic columned central pedestal, surmounted by shallow bowl with foliage decoration, out of which rises pilastered pedestal surmounted by smaller bowl with central fountain finial."
