Coalbrookdale Made Cast-Iron Fountain WSM

Have been nudged to do this short trip down the M5 for ages and finally managed it today.

Back in 1913, Thomas MacFarlane, who was the Weston-Super-Mare Urban District Council leader gifted an iron cast fountain made in Coalbrookdale to the town.

I've been nudged to do this for ages as Thomas MacFarlane was my wife's great great great Uncle.

He did. Still a sign up behind where I took the pic saying 'Macfarlane Buildings'.
Sadly the family spent (or more likely drank) the savings way before I met my wife to be
