TQ0473 : Staines Reservoirs pump house

taken 7 years ago, near to Stanwell, Surrey, Great Britain

Staines Reservoirs pump house
Staines Reservoirs pump house
The building was constructed in 1902 to house the pumps to raise water from the aqueduct from the intake on the River Thames up to the reservoirs. The road with the black car is the A3044 Stanwell Moor Road, which pre-dates the reservoirs. Beyond the pump house is the embankment of the more recent King George VI Reservoir that was completed in 1947.

Satellite imagery immediately to the south-west of the pump house shows the incredible Mr Grumpy Lollipop Man, actually part of the infrastructure of the aqueduct bringing water to the reservoirs!
