Drinking Fountain East of Church of St Paul

A Grade II Listed Building in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside

Drinking Fountain

Uploader's Comments

The fountain was built in the same year as St Paul’s Church, 1864, the land having been donated for both by the Duke of Northumberland. The fountain was installed at the cost of the builder and gifted to the inhabitants of Whitley Bay. At the opening ceremony, the Duchess of Northumberland was noted as saying the fountain produced ‘fine water’. Now unfortunately out of use for a large number of years. However I understand that the Church are considering raising funding to restore the fountain.
