Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Abbey Pumping Station is an industrial museum in Leicester, England, on Corporation Road, opposite the National Space Centre. The museum was previously a pumping station used to pump sewage to treatment works at Beaumont Leys, and was opened in 1891. The grand Victorian building, designed by Stockdale Harrison (city architect in 1890) and beautifully decorated beam engines were a cause of great civic pride. It continued pumping Leicester's sewage until 1964, and then underwent renovation. It opened as a museum in 1972. It is one of a number of historic pumping stations which have been preserved.show more
