Restoring Coventry: Local heritage restored
Another piece of Coventry history has been revived. The carefully restored Earlsdon Drinking Fountain was officially opened in October last year after rusting away for the previous forty years.
It was originally sited on Spon Street by St John’s Church in the nineteenth century so it is highly probable that former residents of Black Swan Terrace would have drunk from it.
The fountain is located on Earlsdon Avenue South close to the War Memorial Park. The water supply may be turned off during the winter for preservation reasons, so bear this in mind if you wish to try it.
