Drayton Green Fountain

Previous - Next

At the point 15, we are immediately in front of the fountain fig. 50., supplied from a cistern which forms a small tower on the top of the tool-house; and beyond that is a walk to the stone cistern at 16, which supplies water for watering the garden. The water is raised to these cisterns by a forcing pump in the stable-yard.
