News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Broadstairs beach. There is a twin about 20 yards to the left but it had some rather fruity graffiti on it.

The Dane John in Canterbury.
This one still functions as a drinking fountain.

Canterbury, Longport.



Although the nearby plaque would suggest this was installed much earlier than the late 1800's.

We had a ride out to Milton Regis near sittingbourne the other day and noticed this old Fountain next to the old Gaol in the High Street. I think it has been resited here as I am sure it used to be in the recreation ground years ago. But a lovely item though and superb pieces of casting. I bet there are other superb examples throughout Kent.
