A newscutting in the Foley Scrap book (W.o.r)) describes the fountain which formed the centrepiece of the    Arboretum Gardens:                                                                                                                                              'The fountain was designed by Barron, and is similar to the one at Witley Court. The diameter of the kerb is 48ft. There are 13 temporary jets, furnished by Mr. Wells, plumber , of Foregate Street, 5 central and 8 springing from a circular tube, throwing a stream to a height of 40 ft. It is intended to have jets of different devices'.
