  Volunteers from Bath in Bloom planting the fountain at Terrace walk, locally known as "Bog Island"
After discussions with the Bath Parks Department it was agreed that Bath in Bloom would undertake to fund and plant up the base of this beautiful 19th century fountain.
 
FACT: Did you know that this fountain was originally situated in Stall St outside the Pump Room and about thirty years ago was dismantled stone by stone and rebuilt in its present position in Terrace Walk.
 
On Friday 19th March a small team of Bath in Bloom committee members and volunteers enjoyed a day of clearing the site and planting evergreen shrubs of various colours and shapes. The planting was designed by committee chairman Steve Brook to enhance and complement the classical architecture of the fountain and was finished off with a ton of Bath stone coloured gravel mulch. A great workout was had by all!
