This web site attempts to catalogue all the extant Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association cattle troughs and drinking fountains. The survey started in London but has been extended to the rest of the UK, Ireland and beyond.
The Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association was an association set up in London to provide free drinking water. Originally called the Metropolitan Free Drinking Fountain Association the name was changed to reflect the provision of cattle troughs throughout London and other parts of the country. The organisation is still active as the Drinking Fountain Assocation. If you are seeking to restore a drinking fountain then please contact the Drinking Fountain Assocation.
This survey may be incomplete so if you know of any troughs or fountains that are not displayed on this site please let me know.
