Courage Yard, Shad Thames, London SE1. The main entrance to Courage Yard from Shad Thames is through a diagonal passage flanked by two round neo-Constructivist towers.

Waterfall is a bronze sculptural fountain with a Renaissance-cistern shape and nymphs.

It is made from cast and fabricated hollow bronze in the form of six nude female figures posed around a central barrel that overflows with water. The centrepiece sits in a concrete pool with a low surround on which sits a seventh figure and several different bronze pieces in the shapes of a watch, harmonic, notebook, pen and a cassette player.

Commissioned by Wickham Associates (now Wickham van Eyck), the architects of Courage Yard.
