Full description

Department of National Heritage, 1994, Dartmouth (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV157498.

Horse trough with drinking fountain. Dated 1898. Granite ashlar. Trough rests on 2 squared blocks of granite. Bottom edges chamfered between the supporting blocks and projecting end is rounded. Granite bollards against the feet on the street side to protect it from the traffic. Left (north) end rises with ogee curves to house water pipes and, on the outer side, a small ornately-cast tap remains to a semi-circular basin, the drinking fountain. The road front is set with lead letters which record that the trough was erected in 1898 in memory of Henrietta Loraine, a founder member of the southeast Devon branch of the RSPCA and, for 10 years, secretary of the Torquay Anti-Vivisection Society. Included for group value.
