Melingriffith Water Pump Is Being Restored

In March 2010, the Melingriffith Water Pump was carefully removed from its site and taken up to Penybryn Engineering for some much-needed restoration work. It was last restored in the 1980’s by the Oxford House Historical Society, but sadly the wood used at the time has not weathered well and is need of replacement. At the time of writing, the Friends of Melingriffith website has no update on when the restoration will be complete (it may be done by the time you read this blog post!)

Here’s a shot from my 2007 blog article about the Melingriffith Tin Works, showing the wheel in situ:

I can’t wait to see it restored and returned to its original site once more, and will potter on over with the camera once it has been.

Royal Border Bridge, Berwick upon Tween

Good morning!

This week, I’m going to start sharing some of the photos I recently took on holiday in Northumberland, starting with the bridges of Berwick upon Tweed. If you’ve never been, it’s a very beautiful corner of the UK, and a very peaceful place to go on holiday to boot. We had a great time, and I hope you enjoy the shots I’ve brought back.
