The recently completed restoration of the Grade II* Listed (Chinese) Pagoda Fountain at Alton Towers Resort, Staffordshire. The 3 month restoration involved specialist surface blasting, iron work restoration and painting.
The (Chinese) Pagoda Fountain was completed c. 1832, designed by Robert Abraham. It is a three storey, octagonal shaped, painted cast iron structure with Chinese hanging lamp bells, on an octagonal White Hollington sandstone base. The cast-iron structure was modelled on the To-ho pagoda in Canton, Southern China and made by the Coalbrookedale Iron Company.
