Dodshon's Fountain - Stockton
This was erected by public subscription in 1878, to commemorate the philanthropist, William Dodshon. Originally, it stood at the other end of the street, near the fish market but was moved to Ropner Park when it opened in 1893, after it was discovered that the fish sellers were using the cool stone and the shadow that it cast to keep their fish fresh, it was moved back after the highe street was pedestrianised.
Home sweet home
Stockton is my home town - i've moved about a bit but always seem to end up back here, this is where i grew up. It is in the middle of the industrial north east, it's not a particularly wealthy town nor is it beautiful but it is home. Don't let me put you off tho... it's not as bad as it sounds, Stockton is less than an hour away from the sea, the moors and 3 major and historic cities. And despite being a small industrial town it has a surprising amout of attractions in the town itself
