The Fountains in Victoria Square
The original octagonal fountains in Victoria Square have been demolished
during the refurbishment. This was not a popular move with some of Bolton's
residents, this page is presented as a photographic history of their memory.
This view of the south fountain clearly shows the cracks. Note also that only
the centre jets are working.
This is the north fountain.

This unusual picture although distorted does show the whole of the fountain.
This picture shows in the top left corner, a fountain in all its glory. Taken
from the town hall steps during an outdoor art exhibition one summer. You can
see the inside and outside jets operating.

With the jets at full, when the sun catches the water this makes quite a nice
effect in the square.
