Canwick, Canwick Hall Sewage Treatment Plant

A small sewage treatment plant was installed at Canwick Hall by William E Farrer of Birmingham shortly before the First World War.

It was located to the north of the Hall where the natural fall in the land aided the flow of sewage through the plant.

Most elements of the works, which lie on private land, have survived but their use has been superseded by a modern sewerage system in the village.
