TQ3380 : Hydraulic pumping engine, Tower Bridge

taken 20 years ago, near to Bermondsey, Southwark, Great Britain

Hydraulic pumping engine, Tower Bridge
Hydraulic pumping engine, Tower Bridge
One of the two original horizontal twin tandem compound hydraulic pumping engines that supplied the water hydraulic power to open Tower Bridge. This is now publicly accessible as part of the Tower Bridge Experience. There are also behind the scenes trips (for more money) that go into the bascule chambers (never done one of those). This plant ran in to the 1970s but was then replaced by oil hydraulic power plant.
