Lyle Fountain Removed

Cathcart Square in Greenock looks very different at the moment because of all the restoration work that is going on.  Perhaps most noticable is that the Lyle Fountain has been removed.

An iconic feature of Greenock's historic centre, it is undergoing specialist restoration by Lost Art.  Click on link here to check out their website for a fabulous portfolio of restored public fountains, bandstands, and other historic and architecturally interesting features.

You can read an article by Inverclyde Council about the fountain's removal here.

Here are a couple of photographs of what the fountain looked like before its removal.  I look forward to seeing it in all its glory once restoration has taken place.
