Adopt a Pump
Our pumps have been adopted The Calcutt Pumps The 12 Calcutt pumps were paid for by Mr Calcutt, and installed by public subscription to Avening Water Works in 1900.   The then chair of the PCC, Albert Hinder,  turned the taps on and then took ownership of them for the village. The pumps  were fed by a reservoir off Longmans Lane,  and villagers obtained their water from the pumps until 1946. Thanks to everyone who showed an interest in adopting our pumps - there will be a small presentation at the PC meeing on 17th July New Inn Lane Just outside of the Bell Inn,  this pump is in a moderate  state, but needs a good rub  down and a fresh coat of  paint. Woodstock Lane  bottom Just outside of the Social  Club, this pump is in a vey  poor state. It needs a thor- ough scrubbing, and then  needs to be painted. Woodstock Lane, top Located where the lane forks,  this pump is in a excellent  condition, and is almost com- plete. It needs a good rub  down and a fresh coat of  paint. Pound Hill Again, in quite a poor  state, this pump needs a  thorough scrubbing, and  then needs to be painted. Point Road this pump is in quite a good state, and  needs a good rub down and a fresh coat of  High Street Probably our most important  pump, both by location, and that it  is almost intact.  A little light weed- ing, a rub down and a re - paint is all  this needs. Tetbury Hill This pump is quite rusty, as it hasnít  been painted. A full service is needed!
