Drinking fountain, Langley Road, Eastbourne, East Sussex

This cast-iron structure was put in place in 1865 by a local resident Elizabeth Curling (1790-1873) and was restored in 2000. On the fountain there is a biblical text, which states: 'Jesus said whoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst'. Originally this drinking fountain was positioned along the Seaside. It was moved in the 1950s to another location, before being fully restored and moved to its present position in 2000.
