Probably early 19th century. Square-section, panelled pier on plinth; cornice and pedimented cap; cast-iron pump handle. Polished sandstone ashlar with droved detailing.
In its original position, situated in the policies of Caldwell House (separately listed), this is an unusual and rare survival of a classical water pump. The house, designed by Robert and James Adam, dates from 1773 however the pump is most likely later and displays a more Regency style of classicism with its panelled decoration and bold pedimented cap. The iron handle still swings though some of the internal fitting are missing, as is the spout.
