Loco water filler

Rescued loco Water Filler


Folk lore says that a Clurichaun stopped the water filler from working, it fell into disrepair and then was hidden away one wet and stormy night.

It was found at the beginning of 2023 under brambles within the undergrowth rotting away.

John has done an excellent job of refitting, refurbishing and getting ready for paint.

We have decided to keep it as an ornament so not encouraging Clurichaun back.

Whilst it looked nice "natural" we decided to paint in the same colour scheme as the rest of our metal work.
