Cherry Burton (click on photograph to bring up bigger/better version).
|Here's an interesting group at Cherry Burton, East Yorks - two
pumps, one of which has dual spouts, the lower of which carries a stopcock to
allow the higher spout to be brought into operation. The larger pump has lost
its (compound) handle, and the smaller pump has lost its cap. Thanks to John
Hurst for the photos.
Markings: The smaller pump carries a roundel which can just be made out to read "APPLEBY & CO. RENISHAW IRONWORKS NR CHESTERFIELD", but the maker's name on the larger pump is now indecipherable.
Manufacturer: Small pump is Appleby &Co, large pump Unk.

ones above. Photo supplied by Paul Snelling - thanks, Paul.
Markings: A maker's plate, but no details discernible.
