Long Description:
Source: (visit link) :
"Bien que l' abreuvoir soit attesté dès 1356, et la fontainé en 1389, l' aspect de la construction n' est pas connu avant le 18e siècle. Le petit bassin a été réaménagé en lavoir en 1823 (date portée) . Vers 1860, l' abreuvoir a été transformé lors de la création de la rampe d' Ardon et du raccordement de la rue de l' Arquebuse : la fontaine a été supprimée, les auges d' abreuvoir ont été déplacées.
Aujourd' hui, on voit d' une part un bassin d' abreuvoir, enclos et entièrement pavé, auquel on accède par une rampe, et d' autre part la fontaine-lavoir alimentée par deux drains et dont les deux bassins sont couverts d' un toit à croupes en tuile plate."

The small basin was refurbished in laundry in 1823. , The drinking trough was transformed during the creation of the Ardon ramp and the connection of the street of the Arquebuse: the fountain was suppressed, the troughs of watering place were displaced.
Today one sees on one side a basin of watering, enclosed and completely paved, which is accessed by a ramp, and on the other hand the fountain - lavoir fed by two drains and of which the two basins are covered with a water - A flat tiled roof. "
