Fountain, Dufton - Village Green

The circular pump and water trough is a distinctive feature at the east end of the village green at Dufton. It was built in the late 19th century by the London Lead Company, which ran mines around Dufton. It has a centre basin with a cast-iron lion's head waterspout on one side and used to have a pump handle on the other side.[1] The pump (aka fountain) is Grade II listed.
