This vast stone in the Dell garden is all that remains of a drinking fountain installed by John Thomas in 1862 using several huge pieces of Cornish granite. These were thought to have been either quarried near Liskeard or taken from a prehistoric monument.

The fountain’s pipework was demolished in 1887 and by 1900, only one main stone, weighing 7 tonnes, was left.
