This pumping station is dated 1895. It was built for the East London Waterworks Co. The Project engineer was William Booth Bryan The plan is based on a typical parish church plan and is very unusual for a pumping station. There is a tower of three stages with round-arched openings at the centre, a single storey wing like a chancel and a tall building like a nave. There is a series of reservoirs along the Lea Valley that serve East London. The pumping station has become derelict.
