Progress on Victorian drinking fountain
Work on the restoration of the St. Lawrence Jewry Fountain is now well underway. The fountain which was last seen in the 1970s was dismantled into approximately 150 pieces and put into storage.
The pieces of the nineteenth century drinking fountain are being conserved and restored by Cathedral Works Organisation under the supervision of Freeland Rees Roberts Architects. The anticipated completion date is August 2010 when it will be relocated to the eastern end of Carter Lane Gardens at the south of St Paul’s Cathedral.
