636-1/5/47 (East side)
Drinking fountain, approx 45m south
south-east of Church of St Mary


Canopied drinking fountain. Dated 1902. Given by Col. SB
Bevington, first Mayor of Bermondsey, in memory of his father.
Limestone and pink and grey granite. Robust Gothic Revival
manner. Gabled cruciform canopy carried on squat pink granite
colonnettes. Grey granite plinth and water bowl, limestone
middle section and canopy.
Standing at the head of the path entering the churchyard from
the corner of Abbey Street and Tower Bridge Road. Like the
Dedication Stele to the west (qv), this structure is a
conspicuous reminder of the churchyard's conversion into a
public park under vestry and later municipal control.
