5/140 Drinking fountain opposite
- No 156, London Road,
including cast iron railings.

Drinking fountain and enclosing railings. 1887, commemorating Queen
Victoria's Jubilee. Portland stone and granite; cast iron railings. Gothic

Plan: A gabled stone structure on a battered, coped stone base. The fountain
is in a trefoil-headed niche with a date of 1887 in a quatrefoil above and
"The Jubilee of Queen Victoria" lettered round the outside of the niche. The
fountain has a pink polished granite bowl and back and a spout mechanism (not
in working order) with cast letters reading "J. Tylor and Sons Ltd, 2 Newgate

side and enclosing the rear have cylindrical verticals and elongated fleur de

A good example of late Victorian street furniture.
