Victorian drinking fountain nears completion

Work on the restoration of the St. Lawrence Jewry Fountain is near completion. 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 have been conserved and restored by Cathedral Works Organisation under the supervision of Freeland Rees Roberts Architects. The fountain has been relocated to the eastern end of Carter Lane Gardens at the south of St Paul’s Cathedral. It is anticipated that the restoration work will be completed by August 2010.
