The Witcombe Fountain was a gift to the people of Hay from Mayor John Witcombe in 1883. Mayor Witcombe served five terms in office, and was a member of the family responsible for building many of Hay's older buildings. The cast iron fountain was made in Glasgow; four pewter mugs originally hung on chains around the fountain and were filled by water from the tap before drinking bubblers were installed. The white lace-worked fountain stands proudly in the main shopping area, a reminder of days gone by.
