MDFCTA number0344 (tentative)
Type and sizeTrough 1a 9ft 6in granite
Original locationCroydon. St. Johns Church outside churchyard
Date erectedApril-1876
CommentsIn some of the MDFCTA records this trough is described as 12ft long but the trough currently just outside St. John's churchyard is definitely 9ft 6in. Is it possible that this trough is a replacement for the original St. John's trough that was 12ft ???
