Chingford Mill Pumping Station, Lower Hall Lane E4 - Waltham Forest

Pumping station built in 1895 for East London Water Works, in a variant of the style popularised by Norman Shaw. The building is in two ownerships. Part of the building has been converted for residential use; part remains for utility use. The roof to the tower section is in very poor condition and rainwater goods require repair. Enforcement action for unauthorised works is ongoing. The Local Authority and Historic England are liaising with the owners to improve the condition and management of the buildings and wider site.
