The Atlas Fountain (1853), Grade 1 listed. Designed by William Nesfield and sculpted in Portland stone by John Thomas.
The tazza, pedestals, shells and basin were made by local craftsmen. A large globe of bronze sits on the shoulders of Atlas.
Four Tritons blow water through shells. Other jets fill the lower scallop shell basins.
