Pump house and pump. Dated 'In memory of John R A Morshead Twenty Seven
years Vicar of Salcombe Regis 1884': A flint structure with brick dressings,
and double roman tile roof to gables, that to front with decorative
bargeboard. A small square building, set into a field bank on the corner of
the Seaton to Salcombe Road and a field track, plain opening with segmental pointed arch and a spear-head iron gate about 1.75m high and 900mm wide.
Inside, a stone floor and a fine reciprocating pump in cast iron with brass
cogs; the pump in the form of a short column with base and palmette cap;
and winding wheel to right. Inset tablet with original date, as above, and
a second tablet 'Renovated by the Sid. Vale Assn 1968-1983' - the dates
ailed in a temporary panel. The pump was used until 1915. It is notable
that the Sid Vale Association, founded in 1846, is the oldest Amenity Group
(Sidmouth Herald, 2.xii.67; article by R E Wilson).
