Another busy morning at Sandfields Pumping Station

Shuttering sorted for one plinth. It just needs fixing in place ready for the next stage concrete, levelling and then the final part tiling.  A level floor is now getting closer.

Engineering team are back with cleaning the engine after the big dusty job.    There were three Hoovers going at one stage! Ground floor has been hoovered and moped, this will need repeating, as it is still dusty. Alan worked on the top floor which is now fully cleaned.  The floor treatment (Liberon) carried out a year or two ago has paid dividends making it relatively easy to get clean again.

Unfortunately, we discovered we have a leak in the 1870s building.

The under-croft was where the team worked this morning.  The three brick pillars have been demolished and a lot of scrap emptied into the skip. The cable to the substation is being pulled through bit by bit.

Once the cable has been pulled through this space can then be used to store the pop-up signs and boards that are currently stored behind the switch gear.  With the aim of getting the switch gear back against the wall, to make a good size gathering area.
