Nottingham Streets

The New 'Old Market Square'

NO WATER?

Just a few days after the official opening the infinity or reflection pool is seen here high and dry so I'm glad I got in early before it broke down!

Apparently it is suffering from a build up of water pressure under the black stone cladding.  For the sake of the Nottingham tax payers, lets hope this is not the beginning of an ongoing maintenance 'moneypit' similar to the Diana Memorial Fountain in London by the same firm of architects Gustafson Porter.

The contractors are due to start repairs shortly.
