Hall, a National Trust property near Arrington, Cambs.
|In the orchard at Wimpole Hall, this small lift & force pump
includes an odd bit of plumbing, in the form of a small bore pipe fitted with
what looks like a gas tap. Our best guess is that it's intended as a method of
allowing the water to drain out of the barrel as an anti-frost device (but no
other Lee Howl pump yet found has anything like it). Thanks to John Hurst for
the photos, who was told that the pump had been fully refurbished a couple of
years ago by an engineer - and that might well explain the odd
Markings: Flag and an indecipherable roundel.
Manufacturer: Lee Howl.
