Guthram Gowt rainfall monitoring station :: Shared Description

Location given on 19th century OS maps for the steam engine used for draining Bourne North fen into the south forty foot drain. There is a small triangular peninsula between the drain from the west, which is on the north bank of the A151, the road, and the drain which passes under the road. Up to about 1975 the foundations of the engine house could be seen on the bank, but the only building visible now is a small brick building and enclosure, a telemetry station for rainfall monitoring.
