THE CASTLE CARR FOUNTAINS
The 2018 opening of the Castle Carr Fountains will be held held on
SUNDAY 8th JULY
On Sunday 8thJuly, in the estate of Castle Carr, their famous gravity fed fountain once again rose magnificently into the sky. Organised by the Rotary Club of Halifax, with the kind permission of Yorkshire Water and the land owner, it is again hoped the fountain will reach a height of over 100 feet. As with last year’s event and fund raiser was watched by almost 1000 people on a bright, warm summer’s day.
This famous local landmark designed and built in the 1870’s comprises an ornamental water garden situated between two reservoirs. The garden consists of a main circular pool in the middle of which sits a single jet fountain. It attains a height that is only second in England, to that at Chatsworth House! But as Castle Carr is further above sea level that Chatsworth we can rightly claim that our is the 'Highest'
