Victorian fire hydrant?
Victorian fire hydrant?
This thing stands on the east side of Knight's Hill near the entrance to Tivoli Park. Is it an ancient fire hydrant? The hole at the top is full of rubbish but may have been where a winding handle was inserted. On the side is the outlet and a curious loop below it.
