This fountain is always squirting over to the left.

Mick, viewed from the other side it would be to the right ; )

I walked round the lily pond a few years ago with a dear friend and it brought back so many childhood memories of Sunday Afternoon outings to Haigh Hall on the tractor. I remember the huge golden fish in among the lily-pads and the greenhouses behind with masses of plants and flowers.

Are the railings a recent addition as I have a photograph sat on the wall years ago? The green houses are in the background as well.

I'm almost sure there was a butterfly house at the rear of the pond during the 1950s when I was a small boy.
