    '1875 by William Burges, an arched niche under a gable, containing medallion portraits and a coat of arms'.  (Verey, David.  Gloucestershire.  I.  Cotswolds.  Penguin Books, 1970).  Stone.  The medallion portraits are of Mrs Frances Bowen-Graves (L) and Sir Maxwell Steele-Graves (R), and the arms are those of the Graves family who owned the Manor.  The memorial was given by Dame Elizabeth Graves.  The inscription on the front of the stone reads:

    The water was brought into this Village in the 1875/ & the Fountain built in memory of Sir J M Steele-Graves Bart/ & of his Daughter Mrs Bowen-Graves/ who lie in the Church-yard of this Parish.

    The long sage of the water to supply to Mickleton is summarised in Story of our Village, Mickleton Women's Institute, Chapter  IV.
