Tap, opposite No 25
GV II
The entry shall be amended to read:

SK 32 SW TICKNALL HIGH STREET
4/100 Alcove, enclosing
pillar fountain, to
the east of-No 20
GV II
Alcove, enclosing pillar fountain. Early C19 alcove structure,
of rubble sandstone with ashlar dressings. Keyed round-arched
opening flanked by pilaster strips. Flat top. Half-domed
interior with c1914 pillar fountain manufactured by Glenfield and
Kennedy of Kilmarnock, and installed at the instruction of Sir
Vauncay Harpur-Crewe at Calke Abbey. Fluted cast iron cylindrical
column with moulded dome top incorporating tap lever handle. Lion
mask surround to tap outlet and integral bucket platform to base.
The design, apparently of 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.
