Cambridge: Former Cheddar's Lane pumping station
Cambridge: Former Cheddar's Lane pumping station
The pumping station was built in 1894 to house two Hathorn Davey steam engines and pumps to pump the town's sewage to the treatment works two miles away. Household rubbish was burned as boiler fuel to raise the steam to drive the engines. The site ran under steam, gas and electricity before closing in 1968. It is now the Cambridge Museum of Technology.

It is a Scheduled Monument.

The chimney shaft is about 175 feet or about 53 metres high.
