4/109 Drinking trough and surround about
- 9m north west of the Manor Hotel


Drinking trough. Surround to trough late C19, erected by Sabine Baring-Gould.
Trough undateable, probably earlier than surround. Granite and Raddon stone. The
trough is set against a dressed stone wall in a chamfered arched granite niche with
granite coping. The trough is filled from a grotesque lead gargoyle fixed to the
rear wall of the niche. Included for group value with the Manor Hotel (q.v.) and the
dovecot (q.v.) immediately behind the trough. The Reverend Sabine Baring-Gould
(1834-1924) was both squire and parson at Lew Trenchard from 1881 until his death.
He was a High Churchman, antiquarian and prolific author of fiction and theological
works. He rebuilt Lew House (now the Manor Hotel) in the late C19 incorporating
earlier features.
