At the end of the Long Garden on the Promenade is the Neptune's Fountain which was designed by Joseph Hall, the borough engineer, and constructed by R.L. Boulton and Sons in 1892-3. The statue shows Neptune – the god of water – holding a trident as a symbol of his power over the sea.

During the summer the fountain is a popular haven for office workers taking their lunch break.

In the background of the photograph is Royscot House, a modern office block, which was designed to compliment the architecture of the adjacent nineteenth century terrace.
