1866 Pease Drinking Fountain, Woodland Road, Darlington

Geotag Icon Show on map

A series of 8 fountains were donated to the people of Darlington by Joseph Pease in 1866, this is the third and final one i’ve been able to locate (although I happily await any correction on that)
Pease Drinking Fountains, Darlington
It bears the inscription ‘Water for the Thirsty” although the metal fountain part may not be original as its an identical design to the 1950s one on Tees Cottage.
Happily this particular fountain has been restored when compared to this 1981 picture of it looking in much poorer condition.
