Wind Pump from Pevensey, Sussex.
This wind pump, which came from a clay pit near Pevensey and Westham Station, is one of three possible surviving examples in the South East of England of a once very common device. A similar one, identified as "Sussex Brickfield Pump" is depicted on an 1881 engraving. The large circular wooden structure is a 'rudder' to assist in keeping the sails pointing into wind.
This pump is sited to the NE of the main village group, being visible to the right of the path from the main entrance, with Lurgashall Mill just beyond.
