Mr Monkey walked along beside the Long Water until he arrived at the Italian Fountains. These were built in 1860 and 1861 on the orders of Prince Albert. Usually the pools are full of water, and the fountains are squirting water about, but when Mr Monkey visited they were being cleaned. Mr Monkey got an interesting view of the bottom of the pool.
