Most older UK villages have a village pump in some central location. This is probably the case in other European countries, at least. These were originally the source of water for the local houses, although they are typically not in use (and often not working) in modern times. The village pump is a useful landmark since it is often quite prominent and in a central location. It is worth having a formal tag as they are exceedingly common features with typically one for every small village.


Some kind of pump + water icon, rendered only at high zoom levels.
