CommentsFrom the current location I am tentatively assiging this trough to one that was originally in Walsall. Paid for by association and Walsall RSPCA. This Trough was at the Sixways Island in Walsall for many years then it disappeared to the street cleaning depot but it has now been given a permanent home in the Arboretum in Walsall.
AcknowledgementsMany thanks to S.M. for bringing this trough to my attention.
