CommentsThis very sad looking trough was originally on the Great North Road, outside Northam Park. The gift of the Dow Countess of Stafford. 3107.0.0. Following an attempt to steal the trough in 2001, in which it was dropped and broken, it has been moved to within Wrotham Park for safekeeping inside a milking shed.
