Braintree Council approached Stone Restoration Services to assist in giving the town’s historic monument a new lease of life.
The fountain was donated to the town in 1882 and was erected to commemorate the golden jubilee of Queen Victoria. Unfortunately it was in much need of restoration and repair.
