1259-/4/0010 Pillar Fountain
to the front of No 39
Pillar fountain. Manufactured by Glenfield and Kennedy Ltd of
Kilmarnock. Erected 1914 at the instruction of Sir Vauncey
Harpur-Crewe of Calke Abbey. Fluted cast iron cylindrical column,
with moulded domed top, incorporating tap lever handle, Lion mask
surround to tap outlet, and integral bucket platform to base. The
design, apparently of the late C19 date is referred to as
Kennedy's patent, self closing, anti-freezing Pillar fountain.
The fountain forms part of a fresh water supply system for the
village of Ticknall, (itself part of the Harpur-Crewe estate),
of which 16 other examples (q.v.) survive. The fountains were
served by gravity from a reservoir filled with water drawn from
a well by wind-pump.
