Friar Waddon Pumping Station
Friar Waddon Pumping Station
This is the water supply pumping station for the Isle of Portland in Dorset. Dates from 1912 and has a disused diesel engine driving an Ashley concertina pump. Now all electric. The hatches in the roof allow a large road crane to lift the bore hole pumps straight out. Expensive but quick.
A real gem hidden down the lanes on the escarpment.
