This hefty flywheel and triple throw crank pump is further along Church St., alongside the Pang stream near the White Hart. I've not seen one like this before, and assume that each operating rod on the crank goes down to its own separate plunger and working barrel, and somehow the output from all three are combined. The wooden shelter carries a board with the following inscription: hampstead norreys hampstead norreys
