croftcastlepump -

Another manual fire engine (of the Nuttall / Phillips design) at Croft Castle. The pumping handles are placed at the ends. The mechanism is simpler and less efficient than that used by Newsham. This is painted with a date 1843 (but this was probably the date of restoration or acquisition). [Kindly provided by Maureen Shettle]
