|The John Soame Memorial Pump, Aylsham, Norfolk. Thanks to Val and Steve Muir for the photos. It carries an inscription which reads:|
|Before the event of a public water supply in 1938, water had to be drawn from private wells. After John Soame's death in 1911, a public well was given to the town by his uncle. The artesian well is 52 metres (170 ft) deep and its roof is thatched with Norfolk reed.|
