Drinking bowl at Crewe

The marble water bowl is dated 1863.

Below on the floor is a red water bowl marked "FOR YE DOGS".

The plaque above on the wall reads:

This plaque was
unveiled by the Hon
Gwyneth Dunwoody MP
on 22 July 1985 to mark the
completion of the Crewe
modernisation project
Crewe railway station
This railway station, opened in 1837, was once among the busiest in the world and has passed into folklore. It is still a significant railway junction, where the trunk line from London Euston splits into three branches for North Wales, Manchester and the main line continuing towards Preston and Glasgow (the Liverpool branch leaves the main line at weaver Junction about 5 miles south of Warrington). To the south there are lines to Stoke/Derby and Shrewsbury/Cardiff. Freight trains usually avoid the station by using tracks to the west which pass under the main line and Chester branch in tunnels.

The station buildings were refurbished extensively in 1985, and are being refurbished again from 2014 onwards although there is the possibility of the station eventually being replaced altogether as part of the High Speed 2 project.
