Hardwick, Cambs (click on photograph to bring up bigger/better version).

hardwick Two flywheel and crank pumps at Hardwick, Cambs. They both have single throw shafts, but in order to double the pumping capacity have a crank disc fixed on one end of the shaft to drive a second operating rod, which is undoubtedly connected to a second underground working barrel. The gearing ratio is 3:1. Photographs by John Hurst - thanks, John.
