For the good of the public this fountain is erected near the site of an ancient conduit known as the Shepherd's Well.
Site: Shepherd's Well (1 memorial)
NW3, Akenside Road
On the ground is a ghost footprint of what could have been one of these water-fountains we remember from the 1950s, found in parks near children's playgrounds, a small dry pipe and a small brass plaque: "Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association".
Seems odd that the inscription makes no reference to this being a source of the Tyburn River.
