Fountain. 1862 for the Dillon family. Limestone and pink sandstone with some
polished granite. Gothic style. The water flows from a steeple-like structure
rising from a sandstone base on 4 short granite columns with stiff-leaf capitals
bearing pointed arches within gables; the drum of the circular limestone
superstructure is pierced by a band of quatrefoils, and carries an ornamented
spire. A band of decoration around the front arch includes the words "IN
MEMORIAM", and a plate on the rear wall commemorates Henrietta Viscountess
