Tumbleton Pump House, Cragside estate
Tumbleton Pump House, Cragside estate
Built in 1868 at the foot of the dam holding back Tumbleton Lake this houses a double acting hydraulic pump that uses the 35 feet head of the dam to pump water to a reservoir 150 feet above the pump house. This is a genuine reciprocating piston pump and not a hydraulic ram (a different kind of black magic).
