aswarby, 2015 Aswarby, Lincs. The outlet at bucket level is sealed with a threaded cap, chained to the drain, in order that water could be routed to the long vertical delivery pipe. But where did that pipe go? Best bet is that it might have had a flexible pipe connected to the top end in order to fill a water cart, or similar. Thanks to John Hurst for the photos.

Markings: None.

Manufacturer: Unk, but looks very similar to a Warners model.
