An interesting cast iron village pump at Llanuwchllyn, Gwynedd, built by public subscription and commemorating the birth of a new son to the Williams-Wynn family. There's an almost identical pump to this in Stanton-by-Dale, Derbs, although it's in rather better condition. Photos by Roger Howse - thanks, Rog. The pump carries an inscription:

y felinheli Almost buried in a private garden at Y Felinheli, Gwynedd. Photos by Roger Howse - thanks, Rog.

See if you can work it out.
