acton Acton, Co. Armagh. Thanks to Marcus Simms for the photo. The pump has been renovated (see inscription on nearby plaque), and the cap is non-standard for this type of pump. But it's to their credit that it still works, and has a significant amount of foam insulation around it, no doubt in an effort to keep it working.

moy Something a bit different - looks like a horse-driven flywheel & crank pump with approx 2:1 gearing at The Argory NT property near Moy, Co. Armagh. Photographs supplied by Marcus Simms - thanks, Marcus. The flywheel has a single crank at the other end of its axle and below this (although the operating rod is missing) the top of the pump's barrel can just be seen at ground level. There's no sign of a spout, and it's possible that the water would have been piped underground to a remote location. The lower gearwheel has an axle which extends about 5m out from the shed towards a short vertical post set in the ground, and Marcus and his dad think that this would have been the point at which the horse would have trudged. Anybody got a better explanation? (See Tyrone for pumps on that side of Moy.)

Markings: "W. DAVIS NAVAN".

Manufacturer: W. Davis of Navan (RoI) - but no further information on this manufacturer yet.
