belleek Belleek, Co. Fermanagh. Thanks to Marcus Simms for the photo and for the observation that this must be the most westerly pump in the UK.

Markings: A label states: "F.W.BRACKETT & CO, ENGINEERS, COLCHESTER - ENGLAND"

Manufacturer: F. W. Brackett was probably the supplier. The pump features in a Stevenson & Turner (Belfast) catalogue, where it is described as a Deep Well Lift Pump "with wheel motion for village use". It is possible that in fact the pump was actually made by Joseph Evans. Identical pumps can be found in NI at Kells, Clough (slightly different finial), Crossgar, Castledawson and Tobermore.
