Fountain number 3

Here's the 3rd fountain I found in Winchester at Queen Eleanor's Garden set in a small secluded area behind the Great Hall, Queen Eleanor’s Garden is a modern reconstruction of a 13th Century garden which was opened in 1986. The garden is named after the wives of Edward I and Henry III who were both named Eleanor. The fountain is made from Purbeck stone.

  2. Lovely photo! The hawk (?) on top of the fountain looks very fierce! Maybe it was protecting the garden :-)

    (Thank you for the comment on my last post...I hope you'll drop by after I've started a new photo blog! Happy weekend!)
