Netley Abbey, Hants. The horse trough came from Abbey Hill, having been provided originally in 1884 by Colonel Crichton of Netley Castle to water the horses of visitors to the Abbey ruins. The Hound Local History Society recovered it, repaired it, and relocated it beside the pump. But there's a second trough there...?

Markings: There's an information board behind the pump, but it's indecipherable in the photo.

Manufacturer: Unk.

portsmouth, 2015 Portsmouth, Hants. I've agonised over whether this should be included, as by no stretch of the imagination is it even remotely a village pump - it's located on the deck of a WW1 Monitor Class 29 ship, HMS 33, in dry dock at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. But it's immediately recognisable as a particularly fine example of a Warners lift and force pump, despite the lack of any maker's name or marks. Therefore it's included as part of the historical record of Warner's pumps. Thanks to Mike Woolford for the photo.

Markings: None.

Manufacturer: Almost certainly J. Warner.

preston, 2015 A well-preserved pump sitting on a circular, brick-built, platform on the green opposite the Purefoy Arms in Preston Candover, Hants. It was erected in 1870 next to the village pond, and the pond was filled in during the 1920s. Good to read that Hampshire CC's official web site lists the pump as "one of Hampshire's Treasures". It has dual spouts, one at high level, probably for farm vehicles. Thanks to Mike Woolford for the photo.

Markings: "S OWENS & CO ENGINEERS LONDON".

Manufacturer: S. Owens.

St. Cross, Hants See separate page.

setley Outside the Filly Inn, Setley, Hants, this pump has a very short handle, with a wooden grip. Thanks to Mike Faherty for the photo on the left, and Mike Woolford for those on the right.

Manufacturer: Joseph Evans.
