2011-04-12 (Day 229) North Queensferry Fountain

North Queensferry is a village on the north side of the river Forth. Dwarfed by the two huge bridges that span the river at this point, its main claim to fame is that the village contains the home of Britain’s previous Prime Minister, Gordon Brown.

In the village is this fountain, bearing the inscription "This ancient spring was restored by lovers of the Ferry for the solace of wayfarers and in memory of sixty years of Her Majesty’s reign happily completed. 1837-1897"

As well as the lion’s head through which the water runs (in the background), there is a metal cup, chained to the wall.
