theescombe, nailsworth The smallest (and rustiest) semi-rotary I've seen to date, near Spout Cottage on Theescombe Lane, just outside Nailsworth. Said to date from about 1900, it's very similar to one nearby at Pinfarthings, near Amberley.

Markings: "NH" set in a diamond shape, "No1", and "British Make".
