Clavering, Essex (click on photograph to bring up bigger/better version).
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.
Manufacturer: Possibly Charles Lack of Cottenham.

Markings: Obscured by multiple layers of paint, but almost certainly "APPLEBY & CO., PATENTEES, RENISHAW IRON WORKS, DERBYSHIRE".
Manufacturer: Appleby of Renishaw.
|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:|
PERSON FOUND ...A...
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"
Manufacturer: Paragon, i.e., latter-day Lee Howl.
