St. Patrick's Well, Heysham, Lancs. The nearby plaque reads:
"This is one of two holy wells in Heysham village (the other, Sainty Well is on private property and covered over), whose dedications are long since lost. Latterly the water from this well was used for utilitarian gardening purposes within the confines of the old rectory."

"Previously the well had fallen into disuse, suffered from surface contamination and became rubble-filled when the bank above gave way in the mid-1800s. In the early 1900s, the well-head was again rebuilt and the well itself was cleaned and made safe by capping with concrete. Recently (May 2002) the well-head has been refurbished and water artificially introduced, thus turning a derelict area into a feature of the village."
Markings: None visible in the photograph.

rufford This nicely wooden-boxed pump is in the grounds of Rufford Old Hall, Rufford, Lancs. The handle, fulcrum, operating rod and guide are all made of iron, but the tank and spout seem to be lead, carrying the inscription "TGFH 1891". Rufford Old Hall was the home of the Heskeths; Thomas George Hesketh was born in 1849, became Sheriff of Northamptonshire in 1851, changed his name to Thomas George Fermor-Hesketh in 1867 (hence the TGFH), and succeeded to the title of 7th Baronet Hesketh in 1876.

Markings: None other.
