Does anyone know what the plans are for the little monument behind the tennis courts? They seem to be piling rubbish around it to make it look like part of the stuff that needs removing, and my neighbour saw a man in overalls taking a couple of pictures of it with his phone the other day. I would have thought that if it is being taken away to be renovated they would send a specialist team in.

My neighbour's emailed the heritage and arts team and parks team at Southwark Council but with little confidence of getting a response. Any other info or ideas on how to follow up would be gratefully received!

It's a drinking fountain made from part of the tower of the old St Olave's Church on Tooley Street.

Entry on Historic England's Heritage at Risk register (containing an update on restoration plans):

A condition survey has been carried out, funded by Historic England, with a view to works being carried out as part of a new landscaping scheme for the park. The Local Authority will be funding and commissioning works based on this survey, and these are expected to commence in spring 2017.

The drinking fountain was hoarded off today pending something. Not quite sure what or the timetable for doing it.

I think the hoarding is only there for safety reasons. There are a number of loose pieces of stone on the top of the fountain and they have put a belt strap around the structure to make sure it holds together. There is no space between the fountain and the hoarding to do any work, so I don't think the erection of the hoarding signals the start of a refurb.
