The Fountain Inn
Photo CDM 2014
The Fountain Inn, 8 Temple Street, Lower Gornal.
This Inn was built in 1860 and is now a very popular award winning 'real ale' pub.
The Fountain closed in January 2018 with an uncertain future.
A new owner has now acquired the Fountain (July 2018), and was re-opened again on 17 October 2018.
In 1874, Mrs Anna Raybould applied for a wine and spirit license, and stated that the house had been built by her husband fourteen years previous, during that time it had been used as a public house.
