SO9422 : Alarms on the wall

taken 3 years ago, near to Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Alarms on the wall
Alarms on the wall
Some alarm equipment on the wall of Cavendish House, possibly still capable of ringing.

Kindly, John Webb has some illuminating details about them:
These are sprinkler alarm gongs. If the sprinkler systems are active, then these will ring. They are powered by small water wheels turned by a small flow of water diverted from the operating system. The systems almost certainly are monitored by more modern communication methods to raise an off-site warning of operation or faults.
