7. Mr Ely's Fountain


Number 7 on the Abingdon Heritage Advent Calendar is Mr Ely's Fountain.

It says "A brick fountain-head created by Mr Richard Ely and placed into a building in Ock Street in 1719 to help provide a better water supply. The building was in a bad state after WW II and the Friends of Abingdon arranged for the fountain to be moved to its present location in the wall of Tomkins Almshouse off Conduit Road."
