In 1867, Christopher Bushell, a Liverpool wine merchant, chaired the first Neston Local Board, which installed piped water. In 1882 local people paid for a monument to him, and the Bushell Fountain still stands at Neston Cross.
* The quotation is given as on the fountain, unedited: in the 19th century they also had trouble with apostrophes.
In January 2016 the top of the fountain was taken away by Cheshire West and Chester Council, for repair.
