About the memorial: 1486/15/105 MARKET PLACE 24-NOV-66 Crimean War Memorial Pump (Formerly listed as: MEMORIAL PARK CRIMEAN WAR MEMORIAL PUMP SITUATED APP ROXIMATELY 10 METRES TO EAST OF NORTH WEST ENTRANCE TO PARK) (Formerly listed as: THE GREEN CRIMEAN WAR MEMORIAL PUMP) II Crimean War Memorial Pump of 1856 in cast iron. It has a moulded, circular trough set at the foot of a Doric column. It has spouts above the trough and to the left near the top. The original plaque and cranked handle with linkages has been removed. The column has 12-sided bands beneath the base and capital. It is set on top of a roughly triangular stone and concrete modern structure, approximately two feet high. This platform is not of special interest. HISTORY: Erected as a memorial to the fallen of the Crimean War. It was formerly situated at The Green, and was listed at this site on the 24 November 1966. It was subsequently relocated approximately 10m to the east of the north west entrance to the Memorial Park in Thorne. The list entry was amended to reflect this move on 29 September 1987. Its original form and former plaque details can be seen on the matching pump which still remains within the Memorial Park (also listed at Grade II). Listed Building Consent was granted on 21 March 2005 to relocate the pump to the Market Place. c Historic England listing entry The HE entries are rather confusing but it seems as if there are two of these pumps, with the same IWM Archive number. One here and one in the Memorial Park. (251432) Any local knowledge wold be welcome
