Default The all new, slap bang up to date photo of the day 2023

Here we go - prompted by Matt's comment. Any chance we could pin this please Mr Admin sir?

Just to get us started, a picture of a roofless shed, a lurcher, and one of the chaps who took away the asbestos roof.

Even with all the PPE, asbestos removal is not a job I'd fancy ....

I do like a Victorian pumping station - those enormous beam engines are just amazing.

The Victorians definitely over engineered everything they built that's for sure

Some might say they just engineered them properly (to provide function for a long time against an enduring need)

From your earlier post, am I correct thinking that this is Claymills pumping station? Since I don't live all that far away from it, I really ought to visit, preferably when it's in steam!

I visited Crossness Pumping Station on the South Bank of the Thames a few years ago on an open day. Part of Joseph Bazalgette's remarkable Victorian transformation of the capital's sewage system. Such an ornate and remarkable building. I'll have to hunt out a few pics...

It is Claymills, yes.
The volunteers are really knowledgable & love to chat about the renovations & how the place works. They are steaming sometime this month they told us
