The fountain was built in the same year as St Paulâ€™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 â€˜fine waterâ€™. 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.
