"Sandstone with granite shafts and bowl; stone flag roof.... lion mask waterspout" (listing text)

North-west side of Museum Street, York

Grade II listed

According to the listing text, the shield bears the York arms, and the canopy finials are carved as carp and fish-tails. This bit of playful Gothic Revival goes well with the Museum Lodge nearby. [Mouse over the text for links.]
