CommentsPaid for by Mrs Barlow 46.9.0. The MDFCTA records describe this trough as 6ft 6in in length but the extant trough in Lynton is definitely 9ft 6in. This trough is one of a few that contain the inscription "METROPOLITAN DRINKING FOUNTAIN AND CATTLE TROUGH ASSOCIATION" instead of the more usual "METROPOLITAN DRINKING FOUNTAIN & CATTLE TROUGH ASSOCIATION". For a full list of troughs with an "AND rather than a "&" click here. The trough was originally on the other side of the road. This is one of two troughs erected by Mrs. Barlow. Who was Mrs. Barlow?
