Drinking fountain in memory of Frances Rolleston
Drinking fountain in memory of Frances Rolleston
Located in Station Road.
Frances Rolleston (1781-1864) achieved a great deal for a single lady of that time, being both a scholar and a campaigner for social issues - for more information see her biographer's website LinkExternal link . Born in London, Frances lived in Keswick for the last 16 years of her life, where she continued to do good works.
The drinking fountain is dated 1865. Water comes from the mouth of a lion with a push-button nose. The stone at the top of the arch is inscribed 'Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst. John IV 14'. There is a maker's name carved at the bottom - looks like E J Grayson (?) Bromley.
The red plaque records the restoration of the fountain by Keswick Civic Society in 2000 - see article in Cumberland & Westmorland Herald, 16.12.2000 LinkExternal link .
