SJ3564 : Bretton water pump

near to Bretton, Flintshire/Sir y Fflint, Great Britain

Bretton water pump
Bretton water pump
The old water pump at the end of Bretton Lane is seen here decorated for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations. The pump once stood on top of a large square block of stone, but when the road junction was widened some years ago the pump and the stone disappeared. Following an outcry the pump was returned, but not the stone block, which is why it now stands within a piece of concrete pipe. For a wider view of the display see SJ3564 : Bretton flies the flag for the Diamond Jubilee
Edit:
The pump was similarly decorated for the Queen's Coronation in 1953 with its stone block painted red, white and blue, and it was flanked with two flagpoles flying Union Flags. I haven't put that photo on Geograph because I don't know who took it.
