A team of SLHA industrial archaeologists visited a small Victorian pumping station in the Lincolnmshire Wolds in August.
three-bore pump in a brick-built underground chamber was driven by a
10-ft diameter waterwheel. Both drive and delivery water came from the
adjacent lake impounded in a valley by an earth embankment.Measurements and photographs were taken
of the pump house and attempts made to locate other features of this
water supply system which served one or more local farmsteads.
