Good Easter Village Pump

Before and After Restoration

Believed to be 19th century, for years the village pump on the Tye, Good Easter, was one of only 2 sources of clean water in the village.

History recalls that the pump was a social meeting spot for the women of the village to meet and draw their water for the day. Mains water came to the village only after World War Two, which promptly put an end to this ritual. In recent times the pump was still used during times of drought, when local residents would again draw on this ancient technology to water their gardens. 

The pump now is a listed building of historical interest and is a much appreciated link to the village’s past.
