Claymills Victorian Pumping Station - pipe drug
This is a historic horse-drawn vehicle that was used to transport large diameter sewage main to locations where it was required for new or replacement mains. This vehicle was acquired in poor condition but has had a long and painstaking restoration culminating in the fitting of the reconstructed wheels. The wheels have oak hubs and felloes with ash spokes and shrunk on metal tyres. The Trust's volunteers fitted the tyres and despite never having practised this skill before, all four wheels were completed without major problems. A length of plastic pipe has been acquired to simulate the payload and has had metal flanges added to make it look more realistic. Painting and weathering will further the illusion.
