Showered with thanks
A group of students have been thanked for their work cleaning up a fountain which stands in the centre of Bath.
The stone conservation students from the City of Bath College spent four days working on the 19th century Rebecca Fountain, which is outside Bath Abbey.
They used sponges and toothbrushes to scrub off the fountain's moss, algae and staining, then repaired stonework, filled in cracks and re-pointed the steps.
Staff at Miles Mann jewellery shop, in Cheap Street, eagerly watched the progress of the students' work and congratulated them on the success.

Sales assistant Amy Holder said: "Before the students started their work, I'm afraid to say the fountain looked a bit of a state. Now it's a huge improvement, we can't believe how much better and cleaner it looks. Tourists should now feel proud to stand by it and have their photos taken."
