Chedworth (click on photographs to bring up bigger/better versions).

There used to be many pumps and wells in the village - see an article on the topic at Chedworth's website.

chedworth In the garden of a private house in Chedworth, Glos. The owner has restored it to working order by re-mounting it and replacing its leather valves.

Markings: Flag, the number "3", and "Made in England".

Manufacturer: Lee Howl.
chedworth Another pump, in the same garden as above. There's a hosepipe connected at the back of the tap, and I suspect that the pump is not original but has been installed as a water feature.

Markings: None.

Manufacturer: Unk.
chedworth This quite large wooden-boxed pump in a front garden has been modified at some stage. It no longer has a spout emerging from the boxing, and its stone trough is sited on the handle side of the pump. A tap has been installed low down, together with a metal housing (which covers I don't know what). And a bird table is perched on top...

I was informed that there is no mains water at the property, but that they employ an electrically-operated pump situated indoors to bring water up from the water source.

Markings: Unk.

Manufacturer: Unk.
chedworth A chunky pitcher pump in Ballinger's Row.

Markings: Flag, "3½" and "All British Made".


Manufacturer: Lee Howl.
