The “FL” motif stands for Sir Francis Ley who was a major benefactor to the village at this time. The village also has a Ley Hall and he was involved in the building of St James Church between 1901 and 1902.

The stand-pipe had the makers mark Ham, Baker and Co. Ltd but this seems to have gone, a metal cup still remains chained to the wall
