BASCHURCH C.P. STATION ROAD (south-east SJ 42 SW side)

15/33 Former pump house approx. - 20m north-west of former Baschurch Railway Station GV II Pump house, now disused. Probably 1848 on Shrewsbury to Chester Railway. Regularly coursed and dressed snecked red sandstone rubble with moulded ashlar cornice; pyramidal slate roof with pointed wooden finial. Square plan. Single storey. Segmental-headed doorway with boarded door on south-west side and tall round-arched multi-paned cast-iron window on north- east side. Interior. Inspection not possible at time of resurvey (January 1987) but said to have cast-iron hand-pump with well below. Although probably built in association with the adjacent railway, the structure is said to have been the pump house for the immediately surrounding area and to have provided piped water to the nearby fields.
