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

This one is located on the corner of Wear bay road and Wear bay crescent Folkestone. Sorry about the lack of light but the weather was turning a bit moody lol.

From the Go Folkestone Newsletter Sept. 2010 :-

The wonderful Victorian Sidney Cooper Weston Fountain was erected by public subscription in 1897. Sidney Cooper Weston, a gentleman of Folkestone, was a Christian philanthropist and a gospel temperance advocate.
The fountain which originally stood at Albion Villas was used as a public drinking fountain from its erection until it was moved to its present home at Wear Bay Road. The fountain was moved circa 1920 when the War Memorial to the dead of the First World War was erected at the top of the Road of Remembrance

Outside the now closed White Horse pub in Minster (Thanet) near Minster church.




Strange that I have lived in the village all my life but only noticed this one yesterday when I went to the church to see a quilt exhibition.

Tudeley. The drinking fountain commemorates Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.

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

Pump at New Cobham College, provided by Lady Darnley, in 1821. It was restored to mark the royal visit by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, in 1996.
