Clavering, Essex (click on photograph to bring up bigger/better version).

clavering This highly unusual pump in Clavering, Essex, is very similar to ones at Elmdon and Hadstock, Essex, and West Wratting, Cambs, and is clearly by the same manufacturer. The theory of operation is explained under the West Wratting entry, but this pump still has its flywheel and weights in place. We've been informed that originally the pump had wooden cladding. Thanks to John Hurst for the photos.

Markings: None.

Manufacturer: Possibly Charles Lack of Cottenham.

clavering The pump on Middle St., Clavering, Essex. Thanks to John Hurst for the photo. It carries a badly weather-worn plate with just a few words which can be made out from the photograph:

...AFFRON...
MAGISTRATES CO
U...
PERSON FOUND ...A...
THIS PUMP
WILL BE PROS...


Which looks like a warning from the Saffron Walden beaks that anyone damaging the pump would be prosecuted.
 Markings: An obscured plate on one side looks from the photograph as it it might carry the Paragon "Flag" motif.

Manufacturer: Paragon, i.e., latter-day Lee Howl.
