This must surely be the site of Langley Roundhouse steam pump although (S1) puts that at TG38800280, this site is not mentioned by (S1) despite being marked on current mapping; he has probably assumed the wrong site from the name. It was built around 1840 with a scoop wheel.
E. Rose (NLA), 27 September 2004.
The site is marked as a drainage windmill on (S2), (S3) and (S4) but had been replaced by a steam engine house by (S5). The site is now occupied by a modern electric pump house.
