The Hammersley Fountain basin has been full of soil for many years, but will now be restored to its former glory - and to working order in time for next summer.
The lining is in fairly good condition and holds enough water to offer us a reflection of the fountain's past and a glimpse of its future.
The structure will now be carefully dismantled, with new terracotta pieces made as required and a fresh pump and pipework to bring the cascades back to life.
The work forms part of the £5.8m Hanley Park restoration project, and is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund through their Parks for People programme.
