A rare chance to see conservation work in progress
Our example of this ingenious form of pump, from the days before steam, was recovered from the Kennet and Avon Canal at Hungerford in 1973. It arrived at Crofton during 2010 and has been on display in a custom-built shelter on site. However, time and the elements have taken their toll! With thanks to the Association of Independent Museums and the Wiltshire Community Foundation for their assistance in funding this work.
