|One of a number of pumps at Wetwang, East Yorks - minus its
handle. Unusually, the spout protrudes through a brick wall at a height of at
least 6 ft.
Markings: "T. PICKERING VICTORIA FOUNDRY D.......IELD" on barrel.
Manufacturer: Thomas Pickering of Driffield. (See very similar models at Sledmere, E.Yorks, and Weaverthorpe, N. Yorks.)
Wetwang, E.Yorks. But is it a pump? It seems to feed a tank, but there's no
sign of a handle.
