Admiral Duncan's Pump & steps to the White Lion
Admiral Duncan's Pump & steps to the White Lion
The plaque on the wall reads -

Admiral Duncan's Pump
The well in which this pump stands was sunk by the direction of Admiral Lord Duncan in 1797 for the purpose of watering H.M. vessels under his command and was then used by the Royal Navy throughout the Napoleonic wars.

The steps lead from Beach Road to Cliff Hill. The White Lion (once a pub, now converted into apartments) stands at the top.
