Snitterfield (click on photograph to bring up bigger/better version).
 

snitterfield A substantial twin throw geared flywheel & crank pump in a field nr Snitterfield, Warks. There's a handle fitted to one of the spokes of the righthand flywheel, but the shaft also carries a pulley wheel which suggests that it might have been intended for use with an engine of some kind - maybe a traction engine? Note that there is no sign of there ever having been a spout, and that the device is located above a derelict sump. Just up the hill, about 200 yds away, is what looks like a small, derelict, covered reservoir.
