Snarestone Pumping Station - beam engine remains
Snarestone Pumping Station - beam engine remains
The incomplete remains of two single cylinder beam pumping engines built in 1890-2 by Bever, Dorling & Co of Dewsbury. The building is now a dwelling and has been subdivided. The flywheels remain but the beams and connecting rods have now been removed. At this time the site was derelict and it was possible to gain access without breaking anything. In best urbex tradition we took photographs and left only footprints.
