THE RETURN OF THE FOUNTAIN
The Devlin Drinking Fountain was donated by major trawler owners, T L Devlin, in 1910 for the Newhaven fishwives to have a refreshing drink of water before wending their way on their rounds. It sat at the Anchorfield end of the Promenade but was "lost" when Lindsay Road was widened in the late 60s. Now, after an absence of 50+ years, it has been returned to Newhaven thanks to the sharp eyes and generous heart of Brick and Stone, Broxburn.
The pink granite fountain, or at least what has been able to be recovered, now sits as the centrepiece of the Old Burial Ground. Newhaven Heritage will titivate up and make better use of it by perhaps making a bird bath out of it or use it as a base for a suitable flower pot as part of a new garden design for this area.
