About this spot

The Grade II-listed piece was given a thorough clean before it was repainted in its original colours of blue and dark green. The original detail on the fountain has also been restored and new granite paving has been laid around it.

A heritage document states that little is known about the design of the drinking fountain but its Art Deco features are “significant of its time with very few other local historical assets showing a similar level of detailing”. It is considered to be a “key part of the heritage of Whitley Bay”.

The promenade itself was partially re-opened in the autumn after a revamp programme, It has a new look with new eye-catching surfacing and railings to match those near St Mary’s Island.
