Full Description

Sewerage pump. A 5ft high hand pump worked by handles attached to a wheel on each side. This was used to pump up the sewage from the pit below into a cart for disposal. The pump is no longer used, constructed in cast iron. The farmhouse to which the pump belongs is on the site of the Med manor of Gibbesmere and has always been the main farm of the village. The house was rebuilt in early C19 by Sir Richard Sutton who owned the estate at the time (29/06/1969). (1)
