Dalton Pumping Station - the beam floor
Dalton Pumping Station - the beam floor
This former waterworks pumping station contains a pair of Cornish beam pumping engines that were built in 1879 by Davy Bros of Sheffield. The cylinders are 72" bore by 9' stroke. The engines stopped about 1949 and were disused in 1983 with the windows all bricked up. Since then the site has been acquired by a private individual and was cosmetically restored for a mooted pub conversion. However, as far as I know the conversion was never finished.
