9/124 Bus shelter about
10 yards east of
Overbury Post Office
and Stores
- II

Roadside fountain, now bus shelter. 1878-9 by Ernest Newton for Robert
Martin. Limestone ashlar and timber-framed, half-hipped stone tiled roof
laid in diminishing courses with overhanging eaves. Tall chamfered ashlar
base, open to north front; west and east side elevations have stepped north
returns about three feet long with moulded capping. Framed panels to sides
and rear have closely-set diamond mullions. There is a chamfered arch-braced
longitudinal main roof beam supporting eight collar trusses with two struts
each. Within is a semi-circular stone projection (former trough?) at the
centre of the rear wall which supports a timber seat; at the centre of the
seat is a slightly tapered semi-cylindrical container (possibly concealing
the former fountain head). There are timber benches attached to the side
walls. The bus shelter is prominently situated on the main road through the
village and is adjacent to the former Post Office and Stores (qv) and nos
45 and 47 (qv). (Saint, A: Richard Norman Shaw, London, 1976).
