Buxton Memorial (Fountain), Victoria Tower Gardens
The Gothic Fountain commemorates Sir T.F. Buxton, a slave-trade abolitionist and prison reformer. It was designed by the architect Samuel Sanders Teulon and Buxton's son, Charles, an MP, in 1865-66. The brightly-patterned roof is clad in enamelled metalwork. Grade II listed.
It originally stood in Parliament Square, but was moved to its present location in 1957 to mark the 150th anniversary of the 1807 Act abolishing the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
