I originally described this as a fire hydrant, but another contributor has sensibly suggested that it would be better described as a standpipe, intended for providing drinking water rather than firefighting.

This example is by Glenfield & Kennedy of Kilmarnock, a very respected name in waterworks fittings (their original works was demolished in 1982: see LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) , but the name Glenfield lives on as part of the AVK Group).
