Repairs to the pump

The pump at Claverton relies on rope packing around the pistons to create a seal within the bore. Over time this rope wears and eventually fails, which means the piston doesn't seal and so stops pumping properly.

On the last running day in June is became clear that something was amis so the following week the maintenance team started investigating and discovered that both pistons needed replacement rope. This has unfortunately meant cancelling some running days - see our opening days page for the latest details.
