J.Stone & Co Ltd

Denmark Hill and De Crispigny Park, Camberwell This was manufactured by J.Stone & Co. Engineers, Deptford, London. It is the finest example of this type we've managed to find. The whole thing appears to be original; the pipe itself is made of four segments, and the crown is intact and in good condition.

other examples of this type exists - Albany Road / Walworth Road; Leo Street/ Old Kent Road; Court Farm Road; outside Catford Station. None are in such good condition as the one in Camberwell, which along with the Catford Station pipe still has its original pipe.
