|A fine specimen at Lenton Lodge, Nottingham. Thanks to Alan
Murray-Rust for the photos, who reports that conceivably the pump is
contemporary with the date of building of the lodge, 1823. He further states
that the fluted casing comprises two full height castings, forming front and
back halves, the split being down the centre of the side faces. The spout
appears to be cast integral with the front face and the two castings are
flanged at the bottom, being bolted to a stone base.
