The monthly meeting of the Lichfield Waterworks Trust is set to take place on Thursday (October 29).

The group, previously known as the Friends of Sandfields Pumping Station, will update members on their latest efforts to save the Grade II* listed building.

A spokesperson said: “The unique 190 Hp Cornish Beam Engine and building are a magnificent monument to the lives of the people who died in the black Country during the mid-19th Century due to the cholera epidemics.

“It also celebrates the achievements of the Victorian water engineers who gave clean water to the nation.”

The meeting will take place at 7.30pm at the Duke of York pub in Lichfield.
