The Keelman & Big Lamp Brewery, Newburn
Restored former Water Pumping Station, built in 1854. It used to house a beam engine, from the Newcastle engineer Hawthorn, used to extract drinking water from the River Tyne through a gravel filled channel. The supply was not very clean, subject to salt contamination from the tides, and silting up of the channel. The Station was abandoned and the engines moved to the west of Wylam, where a replacement pump house still stands NZ1064 : Wylam Pumping Station

The left building, now the pub and restaurant, was formerly the boiler house, and the right building, the 'North East's oldest micro brewery', housed the pumping engine. The burnt out Waterworks House, built for the caretaker of the later depot, was to the right, level with the photographer, but had to be demolished. A new holiday accommodation building, the Keelman’s Lodge, was erected on its site.
