Bainbridge Memorial Fountain


The Bainbridge Memorial Fountain is located in the Horse Market in Middleton-in-Teesdale. It was built in 1877, in honour of Robert Walton Bainbridge, on his retirement as superintendent of the London Lead Mining Company. The company had made Middleton it's main administrative centre in the 19th century. Bainbridge and his wife lived in Middleton House during his time as superintendent. The memorial fountain is Grade II listed. There is a memorial pump with an identical canopy, also dedicated to Bainbridge, in Nenthead, Cumbria.
