A Personal view
A P.C.’s memory
“As a young PC, I saw children climbing into the grounds of the Goldstone Pumping Station. When looking for them, I met a waterboard man who showed me the magnificent Eastern and Anderson Beam Engine, looking like a new pin.
It pumped 150,000 gallons of water per hour from a 50 metre deep well. Installed in 1875, it was a magnificent example of Victorian engineering. The workman was proud, but sad about plans to demolish the Station.
Happily, it survived, to be open to the public as the Engineerium.”
