Archview Terrace, Kidds Road
This pump stands in a small enclosure opposite Archview Terrace, Kidds Road.The cylindrical shaft has three raised bands and is bolted to the pylon-shaped base via a pair of flanges. Similar flanges hold the head in place. This is almost spherical with a short cylindrical section above the flange. There was a saucepan-lid type cap which is missing since the photo was taken.
A similar pump used to stand at the bottom of the well path at High Street, Bessbrook, about 1km west of Archview.The well had a large vaulted cover which was enclosed by galvanised sheeting when the pump was installed. The photo below was taken in the early 1980s. The pump is now removed.
The pumps appear to be identical apart from the handles.
