ffairfach Skeletal pump by the side of the A483 at Ffairfach, Carms. In a poor state and its wooden "plank" (i.e., backboard) is rotted through. In 1973 it was reported to be the last of 38 pumps that served Llandeilo, and at that stage it was still in perfect working condition. Furthermore, "it was around this pump that the women of Ffairfach had their daily bits of news. It was a meeting place for 'y chwiorydd' [the sisters]" - see http://llandeilo.org/good_old_days.php

Markings: None.

Manufacturer: Unk.

Markings: Flag and "3IN".

Manufacturer: Lee Howl.
