    Yes, there is a large reflecting pool with large videos at either end. The water flows down the faces and into the pool. You will almost always find people walking barefoot through the fountain, night or day.

    I can't see images in the posts of Shaun(OfTheDead) or John_Betong. Is it just me or are the images not showing for others?

    Clicking on the link in John's post I see the image.

    @Shaun(OfTheDead) ; it seems your image has disappeared. That link gives me a 404.

    I'm just managing to sneak in here at the last minute, with this picture of the Doulton Fountain on Glasgow Green:

    and some rather wilder water at Lower Killeyan, Islay:
