TQ3379 : All that's left of St Olave's?

All that's left of St Olave's?
All that's left of St Olave's?
This drinking fountain (no longer working) in Tanner Street Park was, according to local lore, formed from part of the tower of St Olave's church when it was demolished in 1926. For the site of the church and the building that now stands there, see TQ3280 : St Olaf House.

I have since found that the answer to the question is "no": the bell, pulpit and some other fittings went to a church in Mitcham that also took the name of St Olave's. See TQ2969 : St Olave's church, Mitcham: interior and TQ2969 : St Olave's church, Mitcham: bell.
