MALVERN. NEW FOUNTAIN AT ST ANN’S. – a gift which will be greatly appreciated by thirsty climbers of the hills. Mr. W. Forsyth was the sculptor. The water flows from a dolphin head into a pretty shell-shaped basin, the support of which is carved in hart’s-tongue ferns. A tablet tells to whom the visitors are indebted for the gift, and contains these lines, composed by the Rev. W. Blake Atkinson, rector of Bradley, near Redditch:
Drink of this crystal fountain. / And praise the loving Lord, / Who from the rocky mountain / This living stream outpoured; / Fit emblem to the holy fount / That flows from God’s eternal mount.
