Hethersett (click on photograph to bring up bigger/better version).
|A large pump capped with a crown by the side of the old Newmarket
Rd (B1172) at Hethersett, Norfolk. A number of these pumps were installed along
this road in the early 19th Century by the Turnpike Trustees, and were used "to provide water for
experiments in roadmaking as well as for laying the dust". There's another
survivor just up the road at Cringleford.
Markings: "SHALDERS PATENT NORWICH", "POWERLINE", and "BARREL xxx" [last letters obliterated] .
