Sandfields Pumping Station

The group is fighting to save the Grade II* listed Sandfields Pumping Station.

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-nineteenth 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 on May 26 at the George IV pub on Bore Street.

    What happened with Persimmon paying into this?? Is LDC still going to let them build in the district, even thought they’ve not delivered on this beautiful pumping station?

    Of course they will.

    The council planning team make many promises, regarding developers. Then when the developers are back in the region. All of the council promises disappear.

    Loads of new builds are unadopted and remedial works never completed. The council say there is nothing they can do.

    Developers can do what they want and they know it.
