Drinking fountain in St James Gardens, Hampstead Road NW1 - Camden

Drinking fountain likely to date from the 1880s. Constructed from cast iron, the design closely resembles a pattern illustrated in Macfarlane's catalogue of circa 1880. The fountain has been temporarily removed from its plinth due to fire damage, and is being stored by the Local Authority with a view to its future repair. When repaired a new location may need to be found as St James Gardens is likely to be redeveloped as part of the HS2 development at Euston Station.
