Creative Genius

Creating water supplies bought out the best in creative genius. This modest setup was used to supply a farm on the hillside overlooking the river Wye.  

It never ceases to amaze me too where some of the equipment made by Tangye of Birmingham ended up. This small water pump is in a remote part of the Peak District on the River Wye north of Bakewell.

About Morturn

Historian – Photographer – Filmmaker Retired construction professional with a passion for public, social and industrial history. I believe in equality, dignity and integrity for all. Don’t like people who try to belittle the ambitions of others. I am of the opinion that my now life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live.

    The Tangyes, came from ILLOGAN, near REDRUTH in Cornwall….the village I live in. The story of thier efforts and reforming of conditions for work is an amazing one.

    Plenty of the Tangyes’ travelled as far as Australia. The following link shows one in the Sydney Powerhouse Museum, and a cursory search will show some more in their collection, including several models.
