Pumping Station. Dated 1895. Built for the East London Waterworks Co. The Project engineer William Booth Bryan. Brick in flemish bond with soft red brick and terracotta dressing, same box framing. Roofs of tile with swept eaves and exposed rafter ends. The plan is derived from a typical parish church plan; at the centre a tower of three stages with round-arched openings. To the southwest a single storey wing reminiscent of a chancel. To the northeast a tall nave of 3 bays, flat arched windows to north face set in segmental-arched recess; gable-facing elevation has large tupaitite and flat arched window set in round-arched recess; gable head tile hung and box framing; low single storey wing to return long transept arm has a very long strip roof dormer; the facing gable end has a pair of round-arched openings to ground, six-round-arched windows above and a gable head of box framing. At junction of tower and "nave" is a single-storey, gable facing porch with decorative framing to head. Above a plaque in red brick and terracotta inscribed: "E.L.W.W.Co. Erected 1895". The style is noteworthy, a variant of the style popularised by Richard Norman Shaw and usually found on domestic buildings; its use on a pumping station is most unusual, as is the church-like plan. Forms a group with the Turbine House and metal railing, Lower Hall Lane.
