Hardwick, Cambs (click on photograph to bring up bigger/better version).
|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.
|This one's identical to the one above but in much better
condition, although it has lost its spout. Photographs by John Hurst - thanks,
