Leawood Pumphouse and the Cromford Canal, Derbyshire
Leawood Pumphouse and the Cromford Canal, Derbyshire
Leawood Pumphouse contains a stationary, steam pumping engine built in 1849. It was built after a water shortage caused by mine drainage caused severe navigation problems for the canal owners and was designed to lift water from the River Derwent into the canal.

The Leawood pumphouse engine is fully functional and is ‘in steam’ on selected weekends.
