The leader of an arts group is pleased a water fountain has been moved to a more visible site.
The Pineapple Fountain, which was situated outside Trafford House, Station Way, Basildon, has been moved as part of redevelopment plans happening at the former Ford headquarters.
The Foundation for Essex Arts had feared the fountain designed by William Mitchell in 1975 would be thrown away or put into storage.
However, following discussions with developers Colonnade, the fountain will be put on the corner of Station Way and Cherrydown East, where two restaurants are set to be built.
Foundation director Vin Harrop said “Where the fountain was situated, no one could really see it”.
“So if it goes to a more public area, it will be seen by far more people in Basildon and it will give pleasure to those watching the world go by in the restaurants”
