Waterford Fountain, Ford


"This fountain is placed by Louisa Marchioness of Waterford in grateful and affectionate remembrance of her husband Henry 3rd Marquis of Waterford K.P. Born April 25th 1811. Died March 29th 1859." The column was renewed following storm damage in 1868. The fountain no longer runs with water and is now a planter, but nevertheless it remains an impressive landmark in Ford. It is located near Lady Waterford Hall, which was built around the same time. The Waterford Fountain is a Grade II listed structure.[1]
