Full Description

In 1971 the village pump was described as having been 'recently unearthed from a heap of rubbish'. It was described as an iron pump about a well, in poor condition and needing a coat of paint and some paving slabs around it. In 1973 a small grant was obtained towards renovation of the site. (1) The 1st edition 25" OS map marks a well at the site. (2) The 2nd edition depicts a pump, suggesting that the present pump may be of late 19th century date. (3)
