Captain Street water fountain could become listed monument

1 Mins read

The future of the old water fountain that sits on Captain Street in the Killowen area of Coleraine could become a listed monument after Councillors make a decision on the matter later this month.

According to the Irish News, the fountain is thought to date back to the 1870s.

The fountain is classified as “…a rare surviving example of its type within the context of Northern Ireland….of historical interest as it predates mains water installation; it is thought that a bore hole drew spring water from 80ft below. Significant also from a social perspective as a supply of fresh water to local residents, many of whom would not have this facility within their own homes; as such it became an informal gathering point.”

The proposed listing will be discussed at this month’s meeting of Council’s Planning Committee on Wednesday 24th February.
