longstanton One of two pumps in Longstanton, Cambs, this one deserves a bit of attention. (As of 2011 the farmland behind the pump has been transformed into a housing estate but thankfully the pump has not been encroached upon - but neither has it been renovated.)

Markings: A shield carrying a crest, and proclaiming "Bamford's Frost Protected Lift Pump"

Manufacturer: Bamford's of Uttoxeter.
