This is a public meeting and is to be used as a brainstorming session to focus on our vision for LWT and what we want to achieve, so everyone is welcome.


The meeting will be hosted by Philip Mantom of Fillip Training:


Philip has a wealth of experience in designing and delivering training that leads to change in organisations and individuals. Philip also has a vast knowledge of funding option and heritage lottery bids; we are pleased to have him on-board.


The evening will be open to your ideas and suggestions so that we can make Sandfields Pumping Station a sustainable entity and enable it to deliver the objectives of the Lichfield Waterworks Trust.


LWT’s Charitable objectives are to

  • promote and preserve for the benefit of the public the nineteenth century Sandfields Pumping Station complex and associated infrastructure and to facilitate its safety, conservation, security and accessibility.
  • promote and preserve for the benefit of the public the unique 1873 Cornish Beam Engine and other fixtures and fittings situated at Sandfields Pumping Station.
  • promote access to the complex for the purposes of education, community development, and protection of the historic environment.


The evening is open to anyone who would like to be part of this exciting project, and is an opportunity for you to shape the way forward.
