The derelict lodge to the former Whitley Pumping Station, southeast Coventry
The pumping station was opened in 1893; it abstracted water from the River Sowe in order to supply the City of Coventry with clean water. See LinkExternal link
Severn Trent Water has a sign at the gate identifying the site as Whitley. An earlier sign by the Coventry and North Warwickshire District of Severn Trent declares that this is the site of a borehole.
Sowe Valley, Coventry
The River Sowe rises in Bedworth, flowing south towards Coventry; it winds through the city's eastern suburbs before joining the Warwickshire Avon near Stoneleigh. The Sowe Valley Footpath follows the river for over eight miles, mostly through naturalistic green spaces. LinkExternal link
