A crocodile in the Cotswolds !

Today on my way to deliver some painted chairs I passed through Compton Abdale. I've driven the same way quite a few times but today I saw something ......a wonderful face of a crocodile with water coming from his mouth.
The crocodile's head was carved by George Curtis of Hazleton in the mid C19th. The spring water comes through Great Oolitic limestone and flows into the River Coln, a tributary of the River Thames.
  Isn't he..or she lovely. Next time I'm taking a bottle to fill.
