Located near to the docking port in Bowness is a monument to Sir William Bower Forwood D. L. Sir Forwood was a 19th century English politician, merchant and ship owner. A wealthy businessman, he helped to raise funds for the building of Liverpool Cathedral and Liverpool Overhead Railway, the city of his birth.


Sir Forwood became a Freeman of the City of Liverpool in June 1902. The water fountain was a gift from Sir Forwood to Bowness.
