Drinking trough
Former drinking trough on the A246 Epsom Road at West Horsley. The inscription on the side confirms that it was provided by the Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association. That on the end reads "Erected under the will of Mrs Laura M Fielder of West Horsley Place 1909". For wider view see TQ0752 : West Horsley pumping station.
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.
