A Wheel of Time

Days were we fetched our water from a well. Days were the women met at tha village pump. But the wheel turns and leaves us only memories. And relics such as these.

Sparham village well and pump

Sparham village well. Or is it a pump? Photo taken 5th July 2018

When first I saw it, I thought by the wheel that this had been the old village well. But I notice there’s also a spout, more suggestive of a village pump. Yet I’ve never seen a pump with such a ‘handle’.

    Interesting! I’ve stayed at camps and cabins where the only water was from a pump, and I’ve never seen a wheel mechanism on any of them. I’m not even sure how that would work, but presumably it does!
