Princess Diana Memorial Fountain


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 must admit that I didn't have great expectations of the fountain after all the bad publicity it received, and I have always had some difficulty with the slightly hysterical 'cult' that developed around Princess Diana.

So - it's only right that I should say that I rather took to the fountain when I visited it. It helps to go on a warm sunny day, when everything looks at its best. The...more
