19/01/81 Bowly's Pump
(Formerly Listed as:
Front boundary walls and pump house
to Sarah Bowley Almshouses)


Pump and pump house. Pump 1864 re-sited. Pump house 1924-5 by
N Jewson. Ashlar piers to front, coursed squared limestone
rubble to sides and rear; stone slate hipped roof. Small
rectangular structure open to front sheltering attached
timber-encased pump and small stone trough with curved front.
Timber lintel over opening has incised lettering BOWLY'S PUMP.
Rear angles rounded off with roof corbelled out over. The pump
was originally installed in 1864 as a gift to the almhouses
and neighbourhood by Thomas Brewin. It was moved to its
present site probably at the same time as the construction of
the shelter, and also the Sarah Bowly Almshouses behind
(q.v.). Included for group value.
