We recently supplied an extremely large antique stone trough to a gentleman in the South of England who has used it as a centrepiece in a memorial garden within the grounds of his stately home.  The trough has been dug into the ground by 3 foot, and has made the most magnificent water feature.  The memorial garden is a private, serene space, surrounded by ancient yew bushes.  The trough sits in the middle of a lawned area, and holds water.  The water is recirculated in order to avoid going stagnent.  Visitors to the stately home throw coins into the water for luck.  The memorial garden has links to Ancient Egypt.  Although the trough is a new addition to the garden, it looks like it has been there for centuries.

This trough was one of 3 similar.  One remains on our yard in Yorkshire, it is stock item LT229.
