The leaden pump at Fen Drayton is protected by a case of elm and oak wood which also provides a nesting box for small birds. The Village Pumps site LinkExternal link tells it that it originally stood alongside a nearby well, where it was in use until the 1930s, but has now been removed to the wall of the lockup at the south end of the High Street - see TL3368 : Village lockup and pump.
