Number 3 is already famous to this board.

South King Street. Built by DCC around 2005 and shut off around 2005! If this doesn’t sum up the Council’s attitude to fountains I don’t know what will. Two theories as to why it was shut off. 1) The wind blew the water away from the drainage; or more believable 2) The fountain was built on a slope and the water simply flowed down to the nearby shops.

Not only did the Council build it and then shut it off they have simply allowed it to fall into disrepair. Most of the holes are uncovered and a clear danger to foot traffic. My money is on this one disappearing beneath some tarmac any day now once somebody falls over and sues the Council.

If anyone has an update on the plans for what will happen I would love to hear.
