Erected in 1831
This plaque, built into the Engine Hall wall, features 'J Yarrow' - one of my family - either John or James.
He would have had a vested interested in this pumping engine as a major landowner and farmer.
It reads: "This engine house erected AD 1831. J Hemmington, H Waudby, W Hall, J Dimmock, T W Granger, W E Read, E Turner, W B Wiles, J Yarrow, E Mason Esquires. Commissioners"
