Boughton Pumping Station
Boughton Pumping Station
This is the smaller 'standby station' that had a Hathorn, Davey horizontal tandem compound 'differential' pump and an inverted vertical triple expansion pump. Beyond can be glimpsed the huge pumping station that housed a pair of triple expansion engines with horizontal high pressure cylinders and inverted vertical intermediate and low pressure cylinders. These were built by Ashton, Frost of Blackburn and scrapped in the 1970s.
