Former pumping station, Tachbrook Road, Royal Leamington Spa
This little building first appears on a map of 1938 at the same time as the Kingsway housing estate built by Leamington Corporation; a couple of houses in Bury Road can be seen. The ground rises to the left (south); maybe the station pumped the town's water to the new estate. Now it looks like a dwelling. The colour of the paint and the style of the plate by the door, 'G46', suggests a connection with Station House, recently-built student accommodation fronting Old Warwick Road across the canal; the flats are numbered 1-45.
