SO9995 : Wood Green Pumping Station

taken 29 years ago, near to Wednesbury, Sandwell, Great Britain

Wood Green Pumping Station
Wood Green Pumping Station
South Staffordshire Waterworks Company steam pumping station. The chimney now has cell phone excrescences and the satellite suggests the rail tracks have been replaced by trees. Triple expansion house nearest with beam engine house beyond the boiler houses. The chimney is a surprising survival.
The perspective makes it look like I'm stood in the "four foot" - I don't think I was but it was a wee while ago.
