"This drinking fountain was put up for the free use of the public by K.LYALL, F.C.RAE, A.C.RAE and C.C.HARTY
and with the consent of the Parish Council of Eastry was made over to that body for care and maintenance
AD 1911"

You mean this one at 1 High St., Eastry. It is beside the road, so you can see it on Google streetview,
