TQ2670 : Wandle Pumping Station

taken 7 years ago, near to Merton, Great Britain

Wandle Pumping Station
Wandle Pumping Station
This appears to be the only operational building remaining in the disused Thames Water sewage treatment works in Merton. I presume that after treatment was abandoned on this site in 1971 [source: Merton borough website, page later removed], the sewage was pumped to another works (or maybe into the south London trunk sewer for treatment at Crossness?)
