Many of the Troughs (and Drinking Fountains) in Kent resulted from the establishment in 1859 of the 'Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association. The Association's original objective was to provide clean drinking water to the public. It extended this to include Cattle (Horse) Troughs in 1867.
By 1936 the Association stopped building Troughs as cars and lories were gradually replacing the horse.
Also included are a number of fake/imitation 'planter' troughs to be found in Kent villages.
