Police are now appealing for information about the theft from Shenley Hall in Rectory Lane, which took place at around 11pm on Thursday June 25.
The culprits drove onto a grassed area in front of the property, which is now occupied by Road Tech Computer Systems, and removed the four-tier fountain before placing it into a van and making off.
Due to the size and weight of the fountain, which had four bowls of decreasing sizes, there would have been at least two culprits removing it.
