Ladykirk (click on photograph to bring up bigger/better version).
|A large red sandstone edifice near Ladykirk, Scottish Borders, with a handle and access door hidden around the back. Photos by John Gow and John Bolton. A diamond-shaped metal plaque also holds the spout, and an inscription reads as follows:|
| ERECTED BY
THE RIGHT HONOURABLE
TO COMMEMORATE THE JUBILEE
OF QUEEN VICTORIA.
21ST JUNE 1887
|There may have been inscriptions on three panels in the sandstone, but two have worn away. The remaining decypherable panel reads:|
| THE SPRINGS
|This is an extract from Psalm 104 v10: "He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills".|
|Markings: None others
|Outside the school at Ladykirk, this pump has come a long way.
Considering the probable maker, is it perhaps a replacement pump? Photo

Markings: The barrel carries the wording "Atta'S Iron Foundry Service No. 3" [sic].
Manufacturer: Atta's Iron Foundry is in West Bengal, India.
