This memorial to Diana, Princess of Wales was opened by Her Majesty The Queen in 2004. The fountain is made from 545 pieces of Cornish granite - each shaped by computer-controlled machinery and pieced together using tradtional skills. The design aims to reflect Diana's life; water flows from the highest point in two directions as it cascades.

I just remember the huge level of disapointment that I felt seeing this boring trough of water that was supposed to represent the memory of such an iconic woman who gave so much.
