Hoping for a fountain of information

Before culverts were installed the Lavant used to run through Havant town centre. Here is a 1914 view along West Street.

Rising of the winter streams which causes havoc in villages

Have your say

I have searched high and low through the many very old books I have on Portsmouth but have found nothing.

Do any of you senior readers know of a fountain that is supposed to have stood in the middle of the passing circle half way down Laburnum Grove, North End.

Many have said to me it was a turning circle for trams but as we know trams, or trolley buses for that matter, never used this road. As I say, I have searched everywhere so if you know of it do let me know. Thank you.
