Please sign this Petition and help us get the Victorian Drinking Well uncovered. It is currently buried beneath the sand on Tynemouth Longsands Beach. The forgotten Fountain dates back to the 1860's and was reclaimed by the sand after it fell out of use.
Back in 2010 the Fountain was uncovered for the day to help raise funds for the Tynemouth Voluntary Lifebrigade but then had to be covered back up again as requested by the council.
6 years on and the Fountain has still not been permanently removed from the sand. This Fountain is part of Tynemouth's Hertiage yet nobody gets to see this beautiful artifact. How many more years is the Fountain going to stay buried underneath the sand.
Let's put this petition to North Tyneside Council so that they can help with the uncovering of this Fountain.
