CommentsPresented by the Shrewsbury branch of the RSPCA. 53.2.0. Structure was removed from Marble Arch. This trough was originally erected, as MDFCTA number [0756] at Marble Arch in March 1881 (as Tyburn No. 3) close to Bayswater Road. The gift of Mr. John Noble. It was moved to Shrewsbury in 1913. Was the RSPCA inscription added at that time? This trough has been removed from Shrewsbury. It was going to be re-erected at Bushy Park, near Teddington Gate, but hasn't appeared at the proposed new location yet. Does anyone known if this trough has been erected anywhere else in, or around, Bushy Park?
