WALKING IN TREADMILL DRAWS WATER (Mar, 1933)

WALKING IN TREADMILL DRAWS WATER

A British country dweller walks a quarter of a mile to get a drink of water, without leaving his own cellar! To raise the large bucket in his 300-foot well, Fred Hoare, of Beauworth, Hants, installed a twelve-foot treadmill beside the shaft.

When he steps inside it to take his daily constitutional, a windlass puts his exercise to practical use and winds in the cable to which the bucket, shown in the photograph below, is attached. Thus he secures his daily supply of water.
