Once installed across London in their hundreds, many historic fountains were switched off in the 1960s and 1970s. Instead of serving the public, they fell victim to vandalism and neglect. Today only a handful of these beautiful public amenities still work. Restoring them brings back vitality to a public space, offers an environmentally friendly public resource, educates and inspires children and creates a sense of local pride. What is more – it is easy! We have restored 11 historic drinking fountains to date and have another 11 currently under restoration. Find out more below about how you can restore one near you….
