Adamson Memorial Drinking Fountain

Fountain In Cullercoats, Tyne And Wear

A 19th century fountain dedicated to Bryan Adamson, a lieutenant of the HMS Wasp that was lost at sea.

If you're enjoying a stroll down the coast near Cullercoats, then no doubt you will have sauntered past the Adamson Memorial Drinking Fountain.

The Adamson family owned a large residence in the village and this fountain is in homage to one of their children Bryan. The inscription reads:

“Erected by a few friends in memory of Bryan John Huthwaite Adamson Lieut. R.N. Commanding H.M.S. Wasp which sailed from Singapore Sep. 10-1887 and was never heard of after. The site was given for this memorial by His Grace the Duke of Northumberland 1888”.

Erected in 1888, the fountain has an octagonal trough from which rises a white marble spire and is filled with four cast iron lion masks. It is also decorated with shells, dolphins and leaves.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
