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.
