SE5953 : Water trough

taken 1 year ago, near to York, Great Britain

Water trough
Water trough
Water trough on Clifton Green situated under a canopy. The design of the trough is typical those of the Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association, although whether this was specifically provided by this organisation is not clear, in that the only inscription is a date of 1883. Grade II listed - see LinkExternal link.

In the background is the tower of St Philip and St James Church and part of 134-140 Clifton Green - see SE5953 : 134-140 Clifton Green and St Philip and St James Church.
Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association
The Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association was founded in 1859 initially to provide clean drinking water in public places for people in London, but soon extended to include animals and also outside London itself. It is still active, with the objectives of:

The promotion of the provision of drinking water for people and animals in the United Kingdom and Overseas
The preservation of the Association's archive materials, artefacts, drinking fountains, cattle troughs and other installations.
