Memorial Drinking Fountain, Greenhead


The drinking fountain is near St Cuthbert's Church in Greenhead. It was erected in memory of John Blenkinsop Coulson in 1865 by his widow and family. The memorial is Grade II listed. [This probaby relates to John Blenkinsopp Coulson of the nearby Blenkinsopp Castle/Estate - but the surname spelling is different - a single "p" engraved on the monument and double "p".]
