Probably erected later in the C19 when piped water was first introuduced to the village.


Cast iron lift pump, with a 10.16cm (4") diameter pipe with strengthening bands ascending to a widened and fluted top chamber, to which is attached a double curved arm and handle. The discharge pipe, at the head of the ascending pipe, has a scroll-shaped bucket hook. On the side of the chamber, a registration number and the manufacturer's badge on the shaft, surmounted by a lion crest, possibly for Norton Hamar, or the Lion Foundry of Kirkentilloch, Scotland, the manufacturer of the adjoining kiosk. The pump is steadied by two stay bars and a collar, and has been recently painted.
