History

Marine Gardens Fountain

Marine Gardens FountainThe principal feature of Marine Garden is surely the rockery and pond. Built with nearly 300 tons of weather-worn limestone brought from Ingleborough, the rockery originally had a waterfall that fed a stream that flowed into the rock-encircled pond. As can be observed there was a small islet in the pond with a fountain. The flow of water was driven by a hidden electrically-driven pump. Years of neglect allowed much of the rockery and pond to become overgrown, but due to the efforts of the FoWSGs much has been revealed. We now look after this area of the garden and are responsible for its general upkeep. In particular, the impressive flower displays are their work, under the guidance of Jenny Chapman, a FoWSG's member.
