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.

There are stink pipes throughout the leafy suburbs of Beckenham.

The upper part of The Avenue is unadopted by the council and retains original 1930s street lighting fixtures attached to the stink pipes.

Several examples can be seen pictured on my website here:

All the best,

I found a watch given to a
G. Allen by the directors of J. Stone & Co (Deptford) Ltd in recognition of 41 years of service. The watch looks pretty old , but I think Mr. Allen's family would love to have it. If anyone knows this family, please email me at pudavis64@yahoo.com. Also engraved thereafter the initial engravement is the name Bob Little. Perehaps he gave it to him. If you have any information, please email me.
