This is not the original but was relocated from a lock pumping station at HM Dockyard, Chatham. Built by J & G Rennie of london, probably in 1879, it remained at use until 1977, latterly on compressed air. It is a most unusual design of horizontal vee (or angle compound) with a vertical crankshaft driving down to a centrifugal pump. Sadly, it was decided that it didn't fit in here and it has now gone to Preston near Canterbury.
