Saving Industrial Heritage – Back from the Brink

Its been three years since the Lichfield Waterworks Trust have gained access to Sandfields pumping Station, Lichfield. A unique The Grade II* listed Victorian Waterworks that is now on the Heritage at Risk Register.

With the help of a couple of small grants and a mass of generosity in the form of donations and sheer hard graft from both the public, visitors, and small social organisations, the trust has undertaken a significant amount of work.

Looking inside of the building now, it is hard to imagine the state of dilapidation that the trust inherited in 2017. In this sixth podcast, Alan Hill talks us through the work undertaken to date and the plans the trust has going forward.
