Worksop Pumping Station

By Roger1
Bracebridge Pumping Station is in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. Built in 1881 as part of the towns sewage system using a steam driven beam engine to pump effluent to processing facilities. The steam was produced from coal , brought by boat from shireoaks colliery.

The pumping station is a tall single store building, built out of brick and ashlar with gaul and blue brick in an Italian Romanesque style. It has tall round headed iron framed windows and a hipped slate roof. Cast iron columns and a spiral staircase remain in the interior, the engine has long since gone. A chimney sits on the north west corner, built in the style as the main building with a decorated top.
