Fountain and Maze (Goswell Meadow)

England / Europe

The Jubilee Fountain and Maze stand in Goswell Meadow, on the land purchased for the National Trust in 1910. The fountain, designed by Mark Oliver, one of the four memorials to the Diamond Jubilee in 2012, consists of jets of water that form St Edward’s Crown. There is a sceptre like canal leading to the fountain, which, appropriately, has 60 jets.In 1922 land was leased to the Windsor and Eton Bowling Club. There is a footway avenue of plane trees, hung with lanterns and opposite the bowling area, a free tennis club with three grass courts. The surrounding ground is some of the finest greensward in the town. The Royal Windsor Maze is based on a chess board. You enter via a pawn and head eventually to the castle in the middle. It is a one-way maze, designed by Adrian Fisher Maze Design, based in Portsmouth. Just outside the railings is the Berkshire Yeomanry War Memorial, dedicated in 1923 to the memory of the Officers, Non Commissioned Officers and Men of A Squadron (Windsor, Maidenhead and Wokingham) who died in the 1914-18 war, many at Gallipoli. It was erected by comrades, relations and friends.
