chipping campden Chipping Campden has numerous little passages off the Hgh St, and at the end of one of them is this pump. You need to look very closely to make out the spout.

Markings: None visible at this distance.

Markings: None.

Manufacturer: Unk.
chipping campden This one is in the grounds of a lovely old cottage in the town - my thanks to the owners for allowing me access. The pump top has a nasty frost crack which has been repaired at some stage in the distant past with a form of filler (cement?), a metal strip to hold this poultice in place, and two iron bands.

Markings: A very badly corroded maker's plate which has indecipherable words in exactly the same position as on a typical Appleby plate.

Manufacturer: Appleby of Renishaw, Derbs. (The decorative details of the pump are practically identical with one at Yanworth, Glos.)
chipping campden Further up Hoo Lane is this lift and force pump with a plank-mounted wheel; the cut off lead pipe above the outlet valve suggests that it might not be in its original location. Thanks to Mike Woolford for the photo.

Markings: Unk.

Manufacturer: Unk.
