Jubilee Drinking Fountain, Wootton



Wootton Queen Victoria Golden Jubilee Fountain
Wootton's Queen Victoria Golden Jubilee Fountain - in the relocated position

A drinking fountain was erected in Wootton High Street to the design of Thomas Chatfeild Clarke in commemoration of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887.

Originally positioned on the lower, southern side of the high street, the complete memorial has been relocated to the garden of a house further up the hill, on the northern side.

The inscription across the top reads:
'1837 ERECTED IN COMMEMORATION OF HER MAJESTY'S JUBILEE 1887'.
