Memorial Fountain, Market Square, Wigton
In the market place is an elaborate 19th Century fountain erected in 1872 by George Moore of Whitehall in Mealsgate, in memory of his wife. It is built of granite, and features four fine bronze relief of the Acts of Mercy by the Pre-Raphaelite sculptor Thomas Woolner. On the north side is 'Visiting the Afflicted', the east illustrates 'Clothing the Naked', the south has 'Instructing the Ignorant', and the west side has 'Feeding the Hungry'.
