CommentsThis trough was originally erected in October 1877, as MDFCTA structure number [0594] on Brighton Road, Croydon outside the Swan & Sugarloaf pub. The cost of 50.0.0 was defrayed by Croydon Local Board. On 25 November 1898 it was removed to the Croydon council yard. On 25 May 1934 it was re-erected, as MDFCTA structure number [2613] at Yatton cattle market at the request of the Clevedon RSPCA. When Yatton cattle market closed and redeveloped as an industrial estate the trough was saved and moved to Grange Farm, Upper Langford.
