Our campaign to save Sandfields Pumping Station started in 2012. It has been challenging, at times incredibly difficult and occasionally frustrating. Since 2017 there has been an incredible about of community volunteer activity on the site. The teams have slowly and painstakingly peeled away years of vandalism and neglect. It’s been hard graft for the people who have freely given their time to save an unremarkable building that tells a remarkable story of our past history.
This was a building that was built to serve the community and we are working to ensure it continues to do just that.
On Monday we opened the site up for the first time for a theatre production team to do their stuff….
Seeing the production team and the actors at Sandfields is what make the whole thing worthwhile. Please do show your support for this amazing community project. Industrial heritage can give so much back to the community.
