Hoppers, Claymills Boiler House
Hoppers, Claymills Boiler House
Each of the five Lancashire boilers at Claymills (SK2625 : The Boilerhouse, Claymills Sewage Pumping Station) is fitted with a mechanical stoker by Meldrum and Clayton of Manchester, originally installed in 1919. Coal was delivered by rail to the station's own sidings. The coal was shovelled out of the wagons into the bunker by hand. It was then shovelled a second time into the hoppers from where the mechanical stokers sprinkled it onto the fires.
Claymills Victorian Pumping Station
Claymills Pumping Station is a former steam-powered, sewage pumping station on the north side of Burton upon Trent, now restored as a museum and visitor attraction. It was built between 1884 and 1886 and used to pump sewage caused by the brewing industry in Burton-upon-Trent to the sewage farm at Egginton. It is designated as a Grade II* listed building (Historic England List entry Number: 1038427 LinkExternal link ); one of only three pumping stations of this size and completeness to survive in England.
