SY6585 : Friar Waddon Pumping Station

near to Upwey, Dorset, Great Britain

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.
