CommentsPresented by the association per Lady Leon donation £5.0.0. Removed by council 1949. This trough and another [1963 and 1964] were moved to the Milton Keynes Museum. One trough was originally outside St. Martinís Church, the other was outside the Railway Station. It is not clear which one was left at the Milton Keynes Museum. One trough was subsequently moved back to Bletchley.
