The Pumping Station
The Pumping Station, taken 12 years ago
The main feature in this OS gridsquare, besides the nicely-named Dark Lane (which adjoins nondescript farmland), is a pumping station. Geographing has made me very nosey. I just had to walk down the hill to find it's owned by Transco and "transports non-odourised natural gas". Wahay!
