St Lawrence Jewry Fountain

The St Lawrence Jewry Fountain is a fountain on the eastern side of Carter Lane Gardens near St Paul's Cathedral in London, United Kingdom.

Design

The fountain was designed by architect John Robinson. It features a bronze sculpture by artist Joseph Durham.[1]

History

The fountain was originally installed in 1866 outside the Church of St Lawrence Jewry. It was dismantled into 150 pieces in the 1970s and put into a city vault for fifteen years, then stored in a barn at a farm in Epping. The pieces were sent to a foundry in Chichester for reassembly in 2009.[1]
