Norstead Place cattle trough – the end of the story

For those of you that remember there was a cattle trough at the intersection of Roehampton Lane an Norstead Place which The Putney Society (TPS) was trying to have locally listed. Sadly, during this process it disappeared. Well, it has recently been highlighted in a National Trust article kindly title ‘New water feature for humans and their four legged friends at Leith Hill Tower’.

The Roehampton mention is within the following text “The Drinking Fountain Association identified a fountain and trough suitable for use by both people and animals and arranged for it to be restored and transported from its previous location in Roehampton”.

Oh dear, hope the Medfield Street fountain is okay?

Many of you in Roehampton would be familiar with the Drinking Fountain at the intersection of Medfield Street and Roehampton Lane. It is Grade II listed (Listing Reference LB/153) and the listing description is “J C Radford. Dated 1882. Grey and red granite. Doric arcaded kiosk erected by Mrs Lyne Stephens, with cupola and ball finial on stepped plinth flanked by cambered-shape horse troughs north and south. Circular central basin with bronze fountain group by Henry Dasson of putti and fish. Semi-circular basin set into each of 4 sides of kiosk”.

The following pictures (taken 26 February 2018) highlight a recent accident which took place that involved the area where the fountain resides. It is hoped no damage has been done to it and perhaps more could be done to protect the fountain from possible road incidents? Especially so after the other fountain that used to be in the Roehampton & Putney Heath ward, on Norstead Place, grew legs and disappeared…..

Cattle trough – EC1, intersection of Myddelton Street and Spencer Street

Sadly, another cattle trough has recently been sighted, this time in EC1 at the intersection of Myddelton Street and Spencer Street, and it too does not have potable water. Sometimes one gets the feeling that Roehampton is considered a soft target for those that require something as resistance or challenge is minimal?

Drinking Fountain Association please bring back the Norstead Place cattle trough!

London Wall cattle trough

To highlight another example of a cattle trough which perhaps could have qualified for being removed by the Drinking Fountain Association rather than the Norstead Place cattle trough, perhaps this trough at London Wall could have been snaffled up. There does not appear to be any ‘potable water’ at this trough?

  7. If the answer to question 6 is yes, please state on what date this was communicated with WBC?
  8. Can TfL please provide details of the person/group whom it liaised with whom now has possession of the cattle trough so that local amenity groups could contact this person/group regarding the removal of the cattle trough?

The answer to question 4, in particular, highlights that the Drinking Fountain Association had been in touch with the Council whom wrote to TfL about the Association’s intentions on 31st July 2015.

Council answers more questions about the missing trough

On the 20th November 2016 the following questions were put to Wandsworth Council regarding the missing cattle trough on Norstead Place.

“This is a follow up to Freedom of Request 2016/13735.

 A letter (dated 4 November 2016) has been sighted which is from the Drinking Fountain Association. this letter states the following – “We did write to the Chief Executive of Wandsworth Council in June last year asking whether the Council had any intention to restore the trough and asking for their view of if it would be used in its present location. The Council replied saying it was no longer under their jurisdiction and was now under the control of Transport for London who agreed to its removal”.

 As a result of this letter the following questions/asks are raised:

  1. Please provide a copy of the letter which the Drinking Fountain Association sent to the Chief Executive of Wandsworth Council in June last year.
  2. Please provide a copy of the response which the Council provided to the Drinking Fountain Association.
  3. When did the Council hand control of the cattle trough to Transport for London?
  4. Please provide the documentation which ceded control of the cattle trough to Transport for London.”

You might be surprised, as there has been some noise about this cattle trough well before the Putney Society sought local listing.

Richmond Park’s Roehampton Gate cattle trough

On the other side of the Alton Estate, just outside of it though within Richmond Park is another cattle trough. Have you ever noticed it?

The ‘Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association’ has this mentioned on its website though the photo is slightly out of date. Have a look and see if you can spot the difference.

Also on the website, there are photos of the various troughs in Wandsworth and Richmond which have the troughs full of vegetation.
