13-AUG-99 (East side)
Horse engine house to centre of cooper's green, in victualling yard. 1778. Brick with pyramidal roof with octagonal louvre on top and fleche capping. Octagonal plan. Small house containing pump over well, with three round-arched windows and a doorway, with recessed brick roundel.
INTERIOR: Contains well head and some late C19 pumping equipment.
HISTORY: The horse engine was the standard equipment when large quantities of water needed to be pumped on a regular basis. From 1989 it was used as a valve house for the Gosport Water Company's mains access to the Yard. It was originally associated with pumping water from a well to supply the Admiralty Brewhouse originally located in the Brewhouse Square.
