Drinking fountain

By oldgreyheron      
There are several of these drinking fountains in Lealholm in the Esk Valley in the North Yorkshire Moors. Some of them are "Listed Buildings" - this one is as it is built into the end wall of of an 18th century farm building.

There are many plaques in the village with the "FL" monogram and 1904 engraved on them - I have failed to discover their significance.

The second image shows the detail of the knob in the centre manufactured by Ham Baker & Co of Westminster, a company still in existence (since 1884) as a supplier of equipment in the water and waste water industries.

Although the spout is not evident in this image, the third image shows the cup on a chain on the right hand side which could be used for drinking.

You can see this on Google Street View!

Have a great weekend everyone!

V 3 is a little gem, although I enjoyed them all.

Your pictures are so perfectly lit and focused, Mike. Always a pleasure to behold.

I'm curious about 'FL' now!

By the way, you're most welcome for the UA on your tulip. One of the best tulip images I have ever seen, hands down.
