Stone plaque at Merrington village pump
Stone plaque at Merrington village pump
Worded from an era very different to the present era it reads;
'To the memory of
Robert Aglionby Slaney and Elizabth Slaney
his wife
Formerly Elizabeth Muckleton
heiress of Walford and Merrington
The first of their many efforts to benefit
their neighbours was to cause this deep well
to be sunk.
They rest from their labours and
their works do follow them.
This pump was placed to complete the work
by
Thomas Campbell Eyton and Elizabeth Frances Eyton
June 1864'.
A time when even access to clean water was of vital importance to the locals. Something that present generations take absolutely for granted.
