The three-level fountain provided water for parched travellers [sic] and their thirsty horses, as well as smaller animals such as dogs, and pigs on their way to market.
The fountain was removed to the City workyards in 1950 where it languished until it was restored when these nine heritage building were refurbished in 1975 to create Market Square.
