|At Lindisfarne Castle (NT), Lindisfarne, Northumberland, this
wooden-boxed pump was used to lift water from a cistern beneath the flagstones
which was filled by rainwater from the roof. Metal tabs can still be discerned
in some nearby flagstones to allow them to be lifted in order to provide access
to the cistern. Currently (2018) the cladding has been removed, as indeed the
pump will be - temporarily, I hope - whilst the castle undergoes a major
renovation. Thanks to Nick Lewis at Lindisfarne Castle for sending the 2018
photos on the far right, confirming the markings.
Markings: Flag, "2½" and "MADE IN ENGLAND"
Manufacturer: Lee Howl.
