Artist's Description

Atlas Fountain

The Atlas Fountain, carved by the sculptor John Thomas, was installed at the same time as Nesfield’s parterre in the early 1850s. The five figures are carved from Portland stone and, after being exhibited at the Great Exhibition, were transported to Castle Howard railway station by steam train. At the same time the South Lake was re-fashioned by Nesfield prior to the installation of a second fountain, known as the Prince of Wales Fountain. Both fountains were turned on for the first time in October 1853.
