The Abstainer's Fountain


This fountain was presented to the Corporation by the Total Abstainers of the Borough in 1888. It originally stood on the corner of Market Place and Market Street. Its remains now stand in Hyde Park near the modern children's play area.


See it in its original position on Old Hyde.

What a fascinating story.

I like it's solid look - and the color of the playground. Looks like it's abstaining from all liquid now. Is that a winter precaution?

its solid look -- hate it when I make a mistake I always criticize others for :)
