Village pump at the junction of Bar lane and Bury Road, Stapleford.

"The village pump at Stapleford, just a short bicycle ride for Ted Mott to capture another charming scene. (He lived in Great Shelford).

Such pumps were a meeting place for the village community. Three of the children have hoops - two are former bicycle tyres and one is made of iron. The hoops, like the village pumps, are

thing of the past." The Villages of Old Cambridgeshire - a portrait in photographs and old picture postcards by Michael Rouse/ Cambridgeshire Collection.

A Public Pump in a tall wooden casing formerly stood in the road at the junction of Bar Lane and Bury Road. Before mains water came to the village in 1936, some residents depended on it for their supply, though many properties had their own wells. In 1948 it was reported to be out of order and the Parish Council asked for it to be dismantled. It had long been a landmark, and continued to give a name to the local bus stop.
