5/98 Village pump including surrounding walls and railings

II

Village pump and surrounding walls including railings and inscription panel. 1844, erected by the Reverend E.E. Coleridge (q.v. the Old Rectory). Flint rubble walls form a 3-sided enclosure on the north-east boundary of the churchyard. The back wall incorporates a Gothic style freestone inscription panel with a 2-centred arch filled with blind tracery motifs. The inscription reads ("This pump for the use of the poor was placed here by subscription 1844 Edwin E. Coleridge Vicar", with appropriate biblical texts below. The side walls have stone coping iron railings with spike finials. The pump has been boxed in, the handle terminates in a ball.

An unusual survival.
