Type and sizeTrough 1c 9ft 6in
Original locationGreenwich. Charlton Church opposite Charlton Lodge.
Date erected1903
CommentsErected by public subscription and Drinking Fountain Association 16.0.4. Coronation fund. There was an MDFCTA trough erected in Charlton Village of the same size and design as the above trough. Furthermore it was erected to commemorate the coronation. However, the MDFCTA records don't mention Sir Spencer Maryon Wilson; and also describe the trough as removed in 1963. I'm tentatively assigning this trough as an MDFCTA structure but another nearby trough that also includes Sir Spencer Maryon Wilson in the inscription does not appear in the MDFCTA records. One of a number of troughs erected to commemorate the coronation of King Edward VII. The trough is close to this fountain.
