A quick Bank Holiday solo visit to this old Pumping Station. Commissioned in 1949, I’m not sure as to when it was decommissioned but it looks like it may have been a while.

Its a very small place, basically there’s only two rooms to see but there’s some nice old control panels with plenty of knobs, levers & dials along with some other bits & bob’s.

It hasn’t suffered too much from Pikey damage but they have definetaly been there at some point although that looks to have ben a while ago.

All in all, it’s not bad for an hour or so and I found a tenner in the room with the scales which was an unexpected bonus and a first on an explore for me!

Here are some pics

What a little gem! And I bet it's not often people come out of an explore richer than when they went in either!
