Cattle Trough, Monkseaton
Cattle Trough, Monkseaton
This cattle trough, which is now used for the display of flowers, was erected by the Whitley & Monkseaton Urban District Council in July 1927 at which time there were still a number of farms nearby. The Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association was an association set up in London in 1859 by Samuel Gurney, a Member of Parliament and philanthropist, and Edward Thomas Wakefield, a barrister, to provide free drinking water.
Originally called the Metropolitan Free Drinking Fountain Association, it changed its name to include cattle troughs in 1867. In 2011, as the Drinking Fountain Association, it began to support the Find-a-Fountain campaign to map the UK's drinking water fountains.
