Wicken Fen Old Windpump

By Les_Cornwell    
Situated on the National Trust Wicken Fen nature reserve, the wooden wind pump was originally situated on nearby Adventurers' Fen, where it was used to drain peat workings. It was moved to its current location and restored in the 1960s. Today it is the last working wooden wind pump in the fens. There is also a new modern windpump on site ... photo to follow Wink

Super Les, the sky and clouds are beautiful, as is the light on the blades of the windmill. Thank goodness it was saved and is still in use. Pam
