Upton St. Leonard's (click on photographs to bring up bigger/better versions).

[There's also a replica in Upton.]

upton st leonards A very unusual pump with a wooden flywheel at the back of the Old School House in Upton St. Leonards, Glos. Respected Victorian architect Henry Woodyer (1816-1896), known mainly for his church restorations and building of schools and vicarages, built it in about 1850 at the same time as he built the school. There's a 1957 photo in existence which shows schoolchildren operating the pump, along with a comment that although mains water was by then laid on, they still used the pump for watering the garden.

Markings: None.

Manufacturer: Unk.
