The glory of the Stanway watergarden is the single-jet fountain in the Canal, opened on 5th June 2004.
The fountain rises magnificently to over 300 feet, making it the tallest fountain in Britain (seconded by Witley Court at 121 feet).
The tallest gravity fountain in the world (seconded by the Fountain of Fame at La Granja de San Ildefonso, Segovia, Spain at 154 feet),
and the second tallest fountain in Europe, after the 400-foot-high turbine-driven fountain in Lake Geneva.
The fountain has a 2-inch bronze nozzle and is driven from an 100,000-gallon reservoir, 580 feet above the Canal, via a 12-inch diameter medium-density polyethylene pipe 2
