There was a bit of a discussion on the Ormiston construction thread about fountains in Birmingham.

It all sparked when I was unaware of one in the location.

What other fountains have we got?

Aston Uni


Bullring cubes (Do these light up anymore?)


The River


Chamberlain Fountain


Brindley Place


The Oozels Street Fountain (Its got water so i'm including it).

I've always thought there was something very 'ITV' about the cubes in the Bullring, when lit up. They look like they should be used in an indent between programmes.

Most fountains are switched off now. Probably too cold to have them on, would probably freeze.

The Snowhill one was off last week. Even the Three Cubes one in the Bullring was off. Assume they will all go back on in the Spring.
