The Curling Drinking Fountain, Seahouses Square
The Curling Drinking Fountain, Seahouses Square
The water fountain in the centre of the square is known as The Curling Drinking Fountain. It was commissioned by Mrs Elizabeth Curling, manufactured by Andrew Handyside’s Britannia Foundry and originally unveiled on the 14th September 1865 (LinkExternal link ) See TV6199 : Curling Drinking Fountain (plaque).

The fountain was originally located in the middle of the road in Seaside, near the junction with Leaf Hall Road. It was moved to the corner with Langney Road in the 1950s because it was causing an obstruction to traffic. In 2000, it was restored and relocated to its present position. The fountain is a Grade II listed structure (LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).
